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, in the surrounds of the beautiful gardens and the Wombat State Forest. 

The Garden of St Erth is also home to Garden Beds Glamping – Six bell tents outfitted in earthy luxury for secluded weekend getaways or nourishing nature-filled honeymoons. A chance to get out of the city, and wake up in a world-class garden!

The Diggers Garden Shop is wheelchair accessible from the main carpark. Our staff would be more than happy to assist with plant selection from the nursery, however, there is very limited disabled access to the nursery and gardens due to the slope of the site.

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.

COVID-19 Update

In line with the easing of restrictions in regional Victoria, The Garden of St Erth has reopened as of Friday 10 September. 

We have put in place all of the appropriate COVID-19 measures to keep our staff and visitors safe, and we look forward to welcoming you back in store.
