Open Gardens Victoria is presenting two delightful gardens in the charming South Gippsland village of Loch on the weekend of April 28 and 29.
‘Wits’ End’ is an attractive cottage garden attached to an 1890s cottage. The owners have added an additional block to the original garden and created a pear walk, rose garden and mixed shrubberies. A magnificent 100 year old Eucalyptus strzeleckii stands guard over a more recently planted selection of beautiful trees including White Cedar, Chinese Elm, Japanese Maple, Silver Vein Maple and Golden Ash.
‘Lochchester’ is a fascinating woodland garden full of interesting plants and crammed with trees including hazel, Manchurian pear, viburnum, Crazy Filbert, mulberry and Silver Birch. Many climbers create vertical interest such as Glory Vine, Virginia Creeper and Boston Ivy. There is also a kitchen garden, and large deciduous trees outside of the garden provide a wonderful ‘borrowed landscape’.
