Blake’s impeccable eye has masterfully combined the richly ornamental band width of planting coming from David’s collection and a  lifetime of his experience as a gifted propagator with an penchant for the unusual.

So really, I urge you not to miss this amazing, never before seen garden of great beauty and very chic combinations, as part of ‘Planty Fierce’ and bring your pennies and plenty of boxes as you WILL be sorely tempted for your own garden 😮

…open FREE for ‘Planty Fierce’ 10am – 4pm Saturday, 5th March 

Just 14 days now until you could be standing in front of                               ‘Sea-Changer’s’ Mirror Deck, part of my first seaside home garden effort, that’s barely at its first season but already with an  impressive youthful high summer flush, thanks to regular rain.   

Mark your planners NOW to see all 4 never before opened, exciting  ‘Planty Fierce’ gardens on the Central Coast on the 1 day.  Avoid the disappointment of missing out on some of the best warm temperate, coastal planting available from sales tables at each garden, just bulging with garden treasures you’ll probably never see again..
