Open flower policy works
THIS beautiful oasis is located in the heart of Canning Vale and the owner is opening its doors to the public this weekend.
A CANNING Vale suburban oasis featuring a colourful array of botany is set to open its garden to the public for charity.
Florence McCrae is letting the public into Craigmile Garden as part of the Open Gardens West Coast series of events from 10am4pm on October 13 and 14.
The garden features a range of plants, trees and flowers, including roses, clematis, fuchsias, camellias and original melaleuca and shade trees on the halfacre block.
Mrs McCrae said the land had come a long way since she first bought it, when it was just a large expanse of sand with a couple of melaleuca trees.
“I’ve got a lot of the older-type plants which have gone out of vogue, but also newer ones. Instead of just being two or three varieties of plants, I’ve got enormous collections of plants on the property,” she said.
Mrs McCrae said gardening was her passion.
The garden is at 3 Ashmore Avenue. Entry is $6 for adults and free for children under 18. All proceeds will go towards the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Refreshments will be available.
