GardenDrumPlant Fierce NSW Central Coast April 2017

‘Sea-changer’ **

Planty Fierce’: three NSW Central Coast gardens open Saturday 29 April 2017. See the gorgeous home gardens of landscape designer Peter Nixon; bromeliad specialist Ray Henderson and rare plantsmen and nursery owners David Fripp and Blake Jolley.

What’s on offer here is the showcasing of design talents of exponents Peter Nixon for ’Sea-Changer’, David Fripp & Blake Jolley for ‘Living Edge’ and Ray Henderson for ‘Paradox’.

‘Living Edge’ high contrasts in Frog’s Foot Coleus – Solenostemon,Lomandra ‘Little Con’, Justicea betonica, Panicum ‘Heavy Metal’ with Alcantarea imperialis rubra

 

Each garden maker has been given pretty much free rein across their own garden space over the past three or four years, to delve into a rich vein of ornamental planting suited to warm temperate coastal growing conditions, to speak up to the existing high interest of the gardening public who want inspiration from gardens made from richly contrasting plants.

Consequently, you can expect horticultural expertise direct from these horses’ mouths and syphon off more than a few ‘planty’ jewels from an array of exciting designer sales tables at each garden. Whether industry or avid home gardener, this is the garden event for you.
