About the garden

Cloudehill - an internationally acclaimed garden in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges.

Not many have the chance to make a garden out of an old flower farm. Cloudehill's original planting goes back to Jim Woolrich when he began planting shrubs and trees and bulbs for the cut flower market and florist trade in the 20s.

The flower farm thrived through to the 60s then, after 20 years gently resting, Jeremy Francis bought what was now something of a sleeping beauty's garden and began making Cloudehill in 1992.

Cloudehill's design derives from Italian renaissance gardens, English arts and crafts gardens, and from contemporary meadow gardening. Compartments threaded along axes incorporate themes such as ‘expectation and surprise’. Deep volcanic soil and moist mild weather allow plants to achieve majestic proportions; for example, the two magnificent weeping maples at the heart of the garden. These glorious trees are historic, they came from Japan in 1928.

Please re-visit through the seasons, with so many ‘garden rooms’ you will find a few at their peak no-matter the time of year.
