I'm a freelance writer who lives on the Bellarine Peninsula. I enjoy finding new things to see and do in the beautiful area that I live in.
Although we all wish we could grow the stunning botanical masterpieces that show on the ABC television show Gardening Australia, or have an elegantly designed garden like the ones that feature in Paul Bangay's books, the truth is, many of us are not really adept. Sure, we may be able to grow a few plants here and there without too much shrubbery-killing and petal-wilting, but to grow entirely perfect gardens to the extent that is possible on television (and in books and magazines) can be pushing it for your average green-thumb.
That is why it is always good to know that there are people on hand who, while not all experts, have the knowledge needed to help with some of the difficulties faced when getting your garden to sprout and look its best. On Saturday 1 November, The Clifton Springs Garden Club will be holding their annual Open Day at the Drysdale Uniting Church Hall. Not only will there be a huge display of flowers and plants (brought in by members of the club), but there will also be someone on hand to answer any questions you may have about your own gardening activities. Visitors can enter a raffle to win gardening-related prizes, and there will be morning and afternoon tea for those who feel a little peckish after wandering around the stalls.

The Open Day will be held from 10am-3.30pm, giving you plenty of time to view all that the Clifton Springs Garden Club has to offer.
