Flowerbeds erupting in colour, kitchen gardens brimming with produce and a heavy scent of jasmine in the air – there's so much to love about spring. It's the season to get amongst the flowers and foliage, as Mickey Robertson of Glenmore House well knows.
Glenmore House is a colonial farm estate nestled in the foothills of Razorback Range in the Macarthur Region of New South Wales. Almost thirty years ago, avid gardeners Larry and Mickey Robertson restored the property and have nurtured it into an inspiring working garden, open for Kitchen Gardening Days and other special events.
This 15 and 16 October 2016, Mickey and Larry are welcoming all to explore the earthly delights of their property for Glenmore House’s Spring Open Garden Weekend.
What can visitors expect from your upcoming Open Garden weekend?¨
Mother Nature willing, the garden will be at its floriferous best – a haze of pink peony poppies in the Borders, malus blossom in the Barn Garden, cardoons, artichokes, sweet peas and other joys all around.
There will be plant stalls, twig furniture and tinkered hardware on the Croquet Lawn, a pop-up lunch with Martin Boetz in the Hayshed, Ovvio Tea and delicious cakes as well as a fabulous flower shop in the Dairy.
It will be all the makings of a delightful day out with seasonal food and produce to enjoy in a country landscape – all just an hour from Sydney.
