What a great time of year to be gardening; and thats what Maureen and Paul Lucas have been doing. There garden ‘Rosemont’ will be open for all to see this weekend. Have a look at  their massive plectranthus !

One of the varieties of PlectranthusThere award winning garden is accredited as a “Garden for Wildlife”. There are collections of cacti, succulents, roses, Plectranthus, Pelargoniums, Salvias, natives, bulbs, climbers, perennials, annuals, herbs,  water features,  a Spanish style courtyard and much, much more.

Paul and Maureen are not only avid gardeners, but are also on the committee of the Royal Horticultural Society – Maureen is  the Editor of Gardeners Gazette and Paul is the official photographer. They are also keen members of the Knox Garden Club, who will be on hand on the day.

Spanis CourtyardHere are some simple but effective ideas using colour.

Maureen says, “We are very chuffed to be chosen among this year’s 500 gardens open as part of Australia’s Open Gardens. They say on the front of their book “Australia’s Finest Gardens” – such a thrill for us. We have opened several times before for the Scheme – both in spring and autumn – and have many hundred people coming through the garden. We are hoping for a good number this time as well.”

Money raised on the day helps the Open Garden’s  garden related charities.

  1. Maureen and Paul Lucas says:

    Our garden is different from many that people will have seen before. We glean ideas from the gardens that we see throughout the world. We hope that our garden visitors will collect some ideas from us as well and adapt them to their own gardens. As our garden (although 1/3 acre) is larger than many, it is also a series of small gardens, so lots of ideas.

    Dear Maureen and Paul , I was wondering if I could come over some time and see your nice garden. I was the head gardener at Canning College ,but I had to give up the job as I have severe arthritis and cannot bend or lift. I suffer a lot of pain and I am now retired..All the very best to everyone.
    From Dan.
