Ivy Al­ley started off as a stan­dard, sub­ur­ban back­yard in north­ern Syd­ney, but Rachel Gleeson’s love of pot­ting and prop­a­gat­ing meant the gar­den soon took over the lawn and her chil­dren’s play area. She says it got to the point where she had to de­cide whether to give her pas­sion away or open the al­ley gate at the back of the gar­den and let cus­tomers in. It’s since evolved into a nurs­ery that breaks with tra­di­tion. It feels more like an en­chant­ing gar­den walk, with the suc­cu­lents, bon­sai, ferns and other small plants play­ing peek-a-boo on their un­con­ven­tional dis­play stands.
