Open Garden Brisbane

Postby Ianrobert » Mon Oct 26, 2015 5:24 pm

After raising $8292 for disabled children for the Moreton Lions Club in the last two open gardens, Judy and I have decided to open our garden again on the weekend of the 21st and 22nd November to again support the ‘Lions Club’ to raise money for a worthwhile cause (Disabled Children).
This year the Capalaba and Moreton Lions Clubs will be working together.
Entry will be only $7.00 and the Lions Club will be providing food and drinks.
A portable toilet will be available situated on the front lawn.
As usual Judy will be selling some amazing bromeliads and other garden plants including some rare plants that you will not get elsewhere (be quick as the rare plants go quickly).
We also have Genny Catlan bringing a selection of beautiful caladiums to sell.
It's on the same weekend as the 'Tropical Foliage Festival' which is held in Cleveland, so you can have a great gardening day out if you visit us both.
Stacks of great plants (including Tropical Fruit Trees) will be for sale as well as fresh 'off the tree' ‘black sapote’ (chocolate pudding fruit).
Please come and see a great garden and most importantly support a very worthwhile cause.
It’s not a walk in walk out garden; it’s one you can spend several hours in.
If you have been before please come again because there’s always something new in this garden and this year has seen a lot of new work done.
Ian has his own website and a garden blog at almost 200,000 people from over 100 countries around the world have seen our garden this way. Ian’s blog has been archived by the state library as being of significant importance to the state of Queensland.
Ian also has a Facebook page devoted to the ‘giving garden’ found at which has over 900 followers and an ‘Open gardens Queensland’ Facebook page
It’s a busy life.
Hope to see you here.
We have a one acre sub-tropical garden . We open to the public in November each year through the 'Open Garden' scheme. We are interested in Bromeliads, Gingers, Heliconias, Costus and all rare and unusual plants.
