Heronswood Parterre

Heronswood

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

Heronswood Gardens are the 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. Read more about the Heronswood Gardens here.

Dine at Heronswood's Fork to Fork Restaurant, located within the historic Heronswood House. Our seasonal menu uses the freshes produce possible with vegetables and fruits grown in our gardens and local Peninsula produce.

The Diggers Foundation

In 2011, Clive and Penny Blazey gifted ownership of The Diggers Club and its two historic gardens - Heronswood and The Garden of St Erth to The Diggers Foundation.

The Foundation strives to conserve historic gardens, buildings and cultural heritage and to protect heirloom seeds using research and education.
