Create a garden your family will enjoy all summer long
At the world famous garden of Heronswood we have been growing tough summer perennials that survive 40°C and look good from December until April for 30 years. Rarely available in nurseries, these first class, toughened perennials are available to Diggers Club members online and at our garden shops, located in our gardens. Unlike “potted colour” our perennials thrive year after year. Come and visit our gardens, enjoy lunch (inside historic Heronswood House) and shop in beautiful surroundings. If you want to create art by planting, join our Club — it’s just $49 for one year! “I was inspired to write my new book, There Is No Excuse For Ugliness, to help people create a summer garden that is cool and refreshing during the hottest of Australian summers,” says author Clive Blazey. Clive and the Diggers staff created the gardens at Heronswood and St Erth after travelling the world in search of the best plants and gardens. The Plant Selector is Australia’s most complete list of herbs, perennials, roses, bulbs, annuals, trees and shrubs that are anything but commonplace and includes detailed growing descriptions for gardeners from Cairns to Hobart. This is a book for both the beginner and the experienced gardener that explains the basics of garden botany for gardening success. RRP $29.95 (just $19.95 with a two year membership).
