Bannockburn & District Garden Club


Members of the Bannockburn and District Gardening Club Inc enjoyed a lovely afternoon at the home of member Marion Wilde and her partner Peter at their property in Sutherlands Creek

 

The 130 plus acres of land is home to a paddock of cows and an increasing number of calves. 

On a sunny afternoon members sat on a veranda with a magnificent view of the You Yangs and Brisbane Ranges. Marion took us for a walk round the property which has been home for only 2 years. 

A beautiful orchard was fully netted and the free range chickens were turning over the mulch. The vegetable garden was fenced and had enclosed beds. A shade house had a lovely collection of orchids in flower or bud and the pond encouraged many birds to frequent the property. Marion was in the process of re designing a large bed close to the house. Members had brought along perennials from their gardens to share with the extra plants gratefully received by Marion.

Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday 28th June at 1-30pm leaving Lions park at 1pm for Sprout House Farm,  11 Beach Parade Drumcondra where we will see how micro greens are propagated for sale to markets and restaurants.  Please call Lyn or Freda as we need Approx numbers
