Glenmore House and garden is a charming collection of 1840s farm buildings surrounded by a working garden of vegetables, roses, herbs, perennials, scented shrubs and specimen and fruiting trees. It’s 25 years since Larry and Mickey Robertson discovered what was then a ramshackle and dilapidated property – it is now a unique historic country home.
To celebrate that anniversary they opened the garden for a Special Event with Open Gardens Australia, with Mickey giving illustrated talks on the transformation of her home and garden, and sharing kitchen gardening tips. Her talk about creating the garden, pretty much from scratch with little experience, was fascinating and a testament to how hard work and vision, with resources and determination, can have such joyful results.
Glenmore House is located at Glenmore, described as the Southern Lowlands area near Camden, about 1 hour drive south-west of Sydney. Mickey conducts Kitchen Gardening and Seasonal Cooking Days.
