This wonderful, vibrant suburban garden starts on the verge where dietes, agapanthus and iris are planted under the jacaranda street trees. Both front and back lawns were gradually dug out and beautiful robinias and gingko trees, along with roses, salvias, some veggies and many other cottage plants thrive. Vegetables and fruit are an important part of this garden and are in plentiful supply.

The mainly Mediterranean fruit trees include pomegranate, persimmon, lemon, quince and cumquat. There are also peach, and nectarine. Intermingling with the fruit trees, vegetables and herbs are clematis, roses, shasta daisies, lavender and many other flowering plants.

Eight compost bins are used to give this average-sized block lots of compost to keep the soil healthy. Pots are used extensively throughout, especially down the side of the house where it is shady and the soil dry under the trees. Many ferns and begonias are planted in pots and have been placed on recycled stools of varying heights, along with those on the ground, which look great. Adjacent to the ferns is a collection of orchids.

Every available space is planted with something of interest. To the back and side of the house are tables and chairs to sit and enjoy the delights of this garden.

670sqm, 0.16 acres.

The nominated charity for this garden is the Red Geranium Op Shop (for Doctors Without Borders).
