David Fripp & Blake Jolley have a well kept secrete .. “Living Edge” garden & nursery.

Well it never started out being a secrete but horticulturally soaked talent usually burns more like a hot ember.  We’ll be blowing the lid off that come Saturday 5th March ’16 when David & Blake’s “Living Edge” garden will open as part of “Planty Fierce”, together with my “Sea-Changer” launch, as a garden extravaganza of four exciting Central Coast gardens you can get to see FREE on the one day. Three of these have never been open to the public before and with “Living Edge” in particular, you can expect a garden made from horticultural treasures  at every turn. Stay tuned for details on the other 2 exciting gardens and mark your 2016 planners !! 

“Living Edge” has a great sense of arrival into an interesting pattern garden that breaks out into beautifully planted pathways and a Dry Garden. Both men have very fine horticultural chops and David in particular as a gifted propagator, so many of the plants that make “Living Edge” from his rather fabulous collection, will be on sale tables for you to take a little (or a lot..) “Planty Fierce” home with you for your own gardens.

So bring your questions as both David & Blake will be moving around the garden to help with challenges and share in your successes. And bring your boxes as you WILL be sorely tempted across the sales tables.
