Heronswood Parterre


Located on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, Heronswood Gardens, Nursery and Restaurant offer an idyllic location to escape to crowds, relax and shop for a huge range of plants, heirloom seeds and garden hardware.

Heronswood Gardens are home of The Diggers Club and showcase the best flowers and plants for Australian conditions. The gardens change throughout the year, and peak in summer with wonderful planting combinations of summer perennials and heirloom vegetables.

The Diggers Garden Shop has a wide range of plants on offer and specialises in Diggers signature heirloom seeds, cottage flowers and edible plants that are complemented by a range of flowering shrubs and cool climate trees.

Dine at Heronswood restaurant, located within the historic Heronswood House on vegetables and fruits grown in our gardens and local Peninsula produce.
