Gar­den­ers en­joyed Creswick

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

ON a very brisk and cool morn­ing, 27 keen gar­den­ers from Euroa Gar­den Club boarded a bus for a trip to Creswick and sur­round­ing ar­eas.

In the ca­pa­ble hands of bus driver Carmel from Wal­ters Bus Lines, the group headed off down the free­way.

Af­ter sev­eral hours they ar­rived at the Gar­dens of St Erth, where those able a walk around the rather steep gar­dens were en­joyed.

Be­fore leav­ing, many stopped at their nurs­ery where lots of plants were pur­chased.

Lunch was held in the Dayles­ford Botan­i­cal Gar­dens where Deb El­lis pro­vided a very lovely and healthy meal.

Next stop was at Over­wrought Gar­den Art where an amaz­ing dis­play of wrought iron met­al­work was for sale.

Of course many items were pur­chased.

Then on to Lam­b­ley’s Nurs­ery and Gar­dens, where mem­bers were shown their amaz­ing gar­dens with plants from all over the world. Still more plants were pur­chased.

The overnight stay was at Barkly Mo­tor­lodge in Bal­larat, which is owned and op­er­ated by for­mer Euroa res­i­dent John Trot­ter along with his par­ents Faye and Ray.

A lovely place to stay and vis­i­tors were spoilt by Faye’s fan­tas­tic din­ner menu.

Up bright and early next morn­ing the group vis­ited a de­light­ful pri­vate gar­den in Creswick.

More nurs­eries were vis­ited in­clud­ing Black­wood Ridge Nurs­ery, which had an amaz­ing as­sort­ment of plants, and of course they did re­ally good busi­ness out of the group.

Once again Deb pro­vided a de­light­ful lunch, and then it was time to head home.

On the jour­ney home the group hap­pened to come across an­other nurs­ery, and so many more plants were pur­chased.

This was a very de­light­ful two days away, and the stor­age area un­der the bus was just loaded up with plants - so lots of plant­ing to be done.
