Cre­ate a gar­den your fam­ily will en­joy all sum­mer long

Gardening Australia - - FRONT PAGE -

At the world fa­mous gar­den of Heronswood we have been grow­ing tough sum­mer peren­ni­als that sur­vive 40°C and look good from De­cem­ber un­til April for 30 years. Rarely avail­able in nurs­eries, th­ese first class, tough­ened peren­ni­als are avail­able to Dig­gers Club mem­bers online and at our gar­den shops, lo­cated in our gar­dens. Unlike “pot­ted colour” our peren­ni­als thrive year af­ter year. Come and visit our gar­dens, en­joy lunch (in­side his­toric Heronswood House) and shop in beau­ti­ful sur­round­ings. If you want to cre­ate art by plant­ing, join our Club — it’s just $49 for one year! “I was in­spired to write my new book, There Is No Ex­cuse For Ug­li­ness, to help peo­ple cre­ate a sum­mer gar­den that is cool and re­fresh­ing dur­ing the hottest of Aus­tralian sum­mers,” says author Clive Blazey. Clive and the Dig­gers staff cre­ated the gar­dens at Heronswood and St Erth af­ter trav­el­ling the world in search of the best plants and gar­dens. The Plant Se­lec­tor is Aus­tralia’s most com­plete list of herbs, peren­ni­als, roses, bulbs, an­nu­als, trees and shrubs that are any­thing but com­mon­place and in­cludes de­tailed grow­ing de­scrip­tions for gar­den­ers from Cairns to Ho­bart. This is a book for both the be­gin­ner and the ex­pe­ri­enced gar­dener that ex­plains the ba­sics of gar­den botany for gar­den­ing suc­cess. RRP $29.95 (just $19.95 with a two year mem­ber­ship).
