The purpose of erecting Alowyn Gardens & Nursery was to give all visitors a chance to enjoy nature, even if they were not interested in gardening. Plant names are displayed to inform visitors of the names of the plant varieties when walking around the garden. Alowyn Gardens paddocks was originally infested with weed and blackberry. Along with a good deal of soil revitalisation and a soil management plan, the earth has been brought back to a healthy state. The first tree was planted in 1999.
Today, Alowyn Gardens & Nursery is well sought out for weddings, birthdays and other festive occasions.
Alowyn Gardens & Nursery can be located at 1210 Melba Highway, Yarra Glen. The event concludes at 3.00pm. See you there!
