Thank you June for your ex­per­tise and judg­ing on the day.

Our host Beryl and Neville have worked tire­lessly over the past nine­teen years get­ting this unique gar­den to this stage and now, al­low­ing all our mem­bers to wit­ness what can be done with love of what you do and hard work.

When they bought this prop­erty there was not much more than lawn and then, the new ven­ture be­gan. Rose cut­tings were brought from their pre­vi­ous prop­erty “Ko­raleigh” th­ese had been struck and were then planted in a horse shoe shape bed.

Neville went on to col­lect rocks from a lo­cal farmer and with th­ese he cre­ated var­i­ous gar­den beds which Beryl went on to weave her magic in the gar­den bring­ing ev­ery­thing to life.

Their gar­den is full of mem­o­ries, plants that have been given to them by spe­cial peo­ple in their life over the years for dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions, only add to this in­ter­est­ing gar­den.
