Home' Visitors Guide : Spring 2011 Contents 10 ❙ Spring 2011
EACH GARDEN open for inspection during this time is a
very personal statement, each gardener has planned and
worried over each tree and bed, agonised over pests and
weather, endured hours of cold winds, drought conditions
and sore knees to bring their garden to its annual peak.
The Southern Highlands landscape is cool enough for
wondrous displays of tulips, daffodils, bluebells and peonies.
These glorious spring flowers are followed in turn by early
summer gardens full of flowering shrubs and roses.
With more than forty private gardens open for public
inspection this spring, the gardens of the Southern Highlands
really do have something for everyone, from the dedicated
and serious gardener, right through to the weekend dabbler.
In addition to these gardens, there is an excellent selection of
local nurseries all bursting with wondrous displays of plants
and flowers just waiting to be planted and displayed. All
of these, along the many excellent local parks and nature
reserves, provide an overwhelming display of cool-climate
spring flowers at their very best.
Gardens open for inspection this spring include those
which stand alone and open during this season purely
for the pleasure of fellow garden enthusiasts, those who
participate as part of the annual Tulip Time Festival, gardens
participating in the annual Bundanoon Village Garden
Ramble, or as part of the annual Robertson Springtime Open
Gardens. There are also those which are open as part of
Australia's Open Gardens program.
Visitors to open gardens in the Southern Highlands can
be assured of a succession of flowering events throughout
spring. The early spring bulbs will be succeeded by
cherries, crab apples, viburnums, dogwoods, azaleas,
rhododendrons, exuberant early and late spring herbaceous
border and wonderful roses in November.
