Opening of Season 2019-20

Launch19 1 webThe Season Launch was held at the stunning home and garden of Margaret and Brian Baker at Heathfield on Sunday 18th August. The large group of Members, Media and Garden Owners braved the wild winter weather, driving through snow and hail to celebrate our 5th Opening.

Our President, Rob Andrewartha, made presentations to Garden Owners Heather Davey from Avondale at Rhynie and Di Michalk from Ashgrove Iris Garden at Gumeracha who have both opened their gardens each year for the last 20 years.

Rob introduced Sophie Thomson as our guest speaker and invited her to open the Season. Her talk “Gardening maintains your wellbeing” was warmly received even above the noise of hail on the roof.

We are pleased to be opening 25 gardens prior to Christmas. Please go to “Current Season” above to view each of these gardens and we hope to see you through the season.
