Bannockburn & District Garden Club

Members of the Bannockburn and District Gardening Club Inc. met at Summer Sensations Berry Farm for a most enjoyable afternoon.

The group headed off to the Windmill Mini Golf where several members enjoyed a game, it was great fun watching them. 

The native plantings and ponds created a lot of interest among members. The excess soil from digging out the ponds was used to make good mounds which added a visual structure to the area. 

A smaller disabled area has plants with texture and perfume; more will be added said Dianne as she showed us around. 

Trees that were planted several years ago acted as a good windbreak.  Walking back towards the Cafe we saw a wonderful gum tree it must have been at least 100 years old - the bark was wonderful.

A group of ladies bent their backs and picked punnets of strawberries which were just mouth-watering.

Before we had a beautiful afternoon tea of scones jam and cream or berry pie and cream, President Lyn Gadd showed us some buddleia species which she had brought along - they were all very different. Freda also brought along a composting bucket and explained it's uses.

Dianne was thanked for her hospitality, it had been a very nice afternoon.

Members will be visiting Dame Nellie Melba's former home on April 26th. All money should be paid by now to Ros.

On May 24th we will visit 79 Lumb Rd Sutherlands Creek for a Perennial swap
