A little over 100 years ago the land around us in Montville changed from rainforest of special significance to the indigenous Gubbi Gubbi people during their “Bonyi Bonyi” festivals, to a source of timber and then cleared for dairying and agriculture, namely strawberries, pineapples, citrus fruit and other orchard crops.
About 30 years ago things started to change again and land cleared for agriculture and orchards started to grow trees and shrubs again for private residential gardens
For more than twenty years we have built up an extensive plant collection around our century old farmhouse. We have a registered collection of “Heritage Roses” and perennial Salvias in a garden with thousands of plants in hundreds of genus from around the world.
For the last 14 years many visitors have trod our garden paths and enjoyed “Open Garden” visits, Book Launches and Bus trips.
We hope you enjoys reading this site and following our gardens story.
