Garden path runs through the years
A GARDEN cafe at a heritage-listed Peppermint Grove property is among the list of attractions at this year’s Presbyterian Ladies’ College Open Garden Day.
Ten private properties will open their gardens to the public this Friday.
Open Garden Day 2015 co-ordinator Davina Gossage said that with the school celebrating its centenary year, the day would pay homage to the past, present and future with a mix of old and new gardens on display.
“To commemorate the PLC centenary, the day and expansive gardens will reflect the yesterday, today, tomorrow theme,” Ms Gossage said.
“The gardens and corresponding houses reflect this theme with old becoming new and several being heritage listed.”
Some of the gardeners and landscapers who design and maintain the gardens will be available on the day to answer questions and following the success of Anna Gare’s cooking demonstration last year, celebrity chef Aristos Papandroulakis will be on hand to give the crowd some expert cooking tips. PLC Open Garden Day will be held from 10am-2pm. Tickets are available online at www.trybooking. com/IJCV or at the gardens on the day.
Year 10 students Emer Lewis, Ali Edgar and Eliza Millar.
