Open to the public for one weekend

[ADVERT]If you fancy escaping the city to the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, why not use these five wonderful gardener's gardens in Mt Eliza as a great excuse to explore and inspire you to create your own masterpiece in your very own backyard?

I find the most interesting part of viewing other peoples gardens is the ideas behind them and the plants used to create the space on display. By viewing other peoples success it can help with plant selection and colour combinations along with ideas you may not have thought of or considered previously. I really like looking at peoples interpretation of a garden and what that involves.

All five gardens are located within the seaside town of Mt Eliza (61 kilometres from Melbourne) and are located within a two kilometre radius of each other, with two being on the seaside and three on the other side of the Nepean Highway.

More information is available through the Anglican website, for which the event is supporting, or for garden descriptions have a look at Di's Delightful Plants website .

The descriptions of the gardens shows a great variety from woodlands, coastal, cottage gardens, formal, perfumed garden, vegetable beds and includes plants such as magnolias, wisterias, roses, camellias, hedges, eucalyptus and heaps more.

Some interesting features are: dry stone wall, water features, fish ponds, mosaic landing, artefacts, fire pit, many meandering paths and some fantastic garden art.

The gardens are open on the weekend of the 9th and 10th of November 2013. Entry cost $5 for single garden entry or $20 for all 5. The gardens will also have plants for sale along with Devonshire tea, and other refreshments.

So why not take your time and explore the gardens and listen to some of the musicians that will be performing on the day?
