Louise McDaidThe Haven, Botany

This garden in Sydney’s Botany called The Haven is just that. An organic garden brimming with eclectic character and loads of great gardening ideas to take away, both practical and quirky. It uses recycled objects effectively for almost everything, and boasts fruit trees, citrus, vegies, herbs, chooks, frogs, bees, wasps and lots more. It packs a lot into its 10 x 46m boundary and is a delight to the senses.

Lots going on beneath the Mulberry tree - raised vegie bed, scarecrow, chook pen, compost bins, tool storage on fence, and lots of plants - the Mexican mist flower  is in bloom and string ball plant experiments hang from the branches
