Meet the gardeners and their garden

In the 10 years since they moved here, Marg and Peter have managed to squeeze a lot of creativity and greenery into their 600 sq metres block.  From their sunny north-facing back deck, you could almost imagine that you were stranded on a tropical island as you gaze across the statue of the sailing lady and through the palm fronds to their productive garden.  The densely planted back garden is a happy marriage between vegetables, rose bushes (much loved by Marg), fruit trees and succulents.

Come to see, learn and be inspired!

  • Raised vegetable beds and climbing frames allow netting to protect against ringtail possums, while the garden has now been secured with a rabbit-proof fence

  • Growing dwarf varieties of some vegetables in pots allows Marg and Peter to enjoy small quantities of a wide variety of foods

  • Spot the outdoor bath on their back deck, together with numerous artworks festooned around the garden including the colourful bird house, stained glass and paintings

  • See how many varieties of fruit trees and berries you can find hidden amongst other plants – there are potted olive trees, persimmons, pomegranates, quince, avocados, loquats, lemons, a lime and lemonade tree, grapes, strawberries and raspberries

  • Ask Peter about his interest in growing Indigenous edibles such as saltbush, native finger limes, Davidson plums and Midyim berries

  • Don’t forget to admire the stunning collection of native plants in the low maintenance front garden
