Trail will bloom as gardens open
THE sublime South West spring time in all its blooming glory will be showcased at the Ferguson Valley Open Garden Trail on October 21-22.
Seven beautiful and diverse gardens have been selected along a panoramic route for onlookers to discover and explore with all proceeds being donated to various charities including the Cancer Council WA and VisAbility.
Participating garden Kivulini’s part-owner Jane Field said the natural seasonal changes every month were amazing with surprises expected especially this time of the year.
“Our garden offers English, Australian and South African shrubs and trees,” Mrs Field said.
“Experience the amazing birds and the garden’s tranquillity while discovering the many areas for reflection and inspiration.”
Welcoming members of the community to wander along creeks, buy plants and marvel at vegetable gardens, event coordinator Kim Wesley said the event was gaining a lot of interest from people across the State and even internationally.
“It is a great opportunity to show off the beauty of the South West and get people into the area,” Mrs Wesley said.
“The trail itself is quite widespread so people will drive through, get a good taste of the vast landscapes and even visit other places in the area.”
From structured cuttings and sculptural art to rambling cottages and winding waterways, the display of native, exotic and tropical natural wonder will be open for all from 10am to 4pm daily.
