SMALL SPACE – BIG DESIGN -Sydney landscape designer (and GardenDrum guest blogger) Peter Nixon’s fabulous inner city ‘micro-court’ ‘Paradisus’ and nearby Ian and Tom’s garden will both be open this coming Sunday 2 March.
Filled with exotic subtropical and tropical plants, Paradisus in Darlington shows both how to design for a very small space as well as what you can grow when you choose plants suitable for Sydney’s ‘cool’ subtropical climate. Florez Nursery will be there with many of these wonderful plants for sale and then you can go on to see Ian and Tom’s garden in nearby Redfern, with it’s mature orange trees festooned with colourful bromeliads.
Complete your outing with a visit to Charlie’s Garden, the local productive community garden.
