Summer Perennial Border

The Garden of St Erth

The Garden of St Erth is a secluded getaway not far from Daylesford and Ballarat.

Each season has something to offer the visitor, including carpets of daffodils in spring, long flowering flower borders in summer and magnificent autumn garden colour.

Stroll around the Diggers Garden Shop and shop for a wide range of incredible edibles, hardy perennials and shrubs and stock up on seeds for the vegetable and flower garden.

Relax over coffee in the cafe and stay on for lunch, morning or afternoon tea surrounded all in the surrounds of the beautiful gardens and Wombat State Forest.
