Show­ing how a gar­den can grow

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Film -

THIS year’s Perth Royal Show will fea­ture a Water­wise Gar­den de­signed by The Gar­den Gu­rus’ Trevor Cochrane and pre­sented by Wa­ter Cor­po­ra­tion and the Royal Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety.

The 1200sq m dis­play will be WA’s largest demon­stra­tion gar­den, blend­ing con­tem­po­rary de­sign with an­cient gar­dens and fea­tur­ing 80 va­ri­eties of water­wise plants from dry cli­mates around the world.

Cochrane has cre­ated six water­wise verge gar­dens with fur­ther fea­tures rang­ing from a tra­di­tional Aboriginal meet­ing place in­ter­pre­ta­tion and a kitchen gar­den with liv­ing ed­i­ble walls and food pro­duc­tion con­cepts.
