Central Coast Garden Ramble

Friday 03 May 2019

Spend a day at the central coast exploring three wonderful private gardens with the designers and growers that live there.

Join Foundation and Friends for a coach tour visiting three incredible private gardens in the central coast, just over an hour north of Sydney.
First stop is Living Edge Garden and Nursery, Peats Ridge, run by David Fripp and Blake Jolley. View their private collection of un-matched sub-tropics treasures that will open your eyes to the vast band width of planting that fits this growing condition. Next door is Kawana Gardens and Nursery. The gardens have a spectacular maple collection, but it’s the way that small, medium and large shrubs are combined that really sets this garden apart.

After lunch at the Bamboo Budda, they head to the Sea Changer at Forrester's Beach, owned and designed by Peter Nixon. The Gardens comprise cool sub-tropic combinations very suited to Sydney coastal near frost free conditions, with high textural contrasts, foliage colour and seasonal flowers.

Included: transportation, morning tea, lunch, and entry fees into the gardens and nursery.
