The Garden of St Erth features an extraordinary range of espaliered fruit, heirloom vegetables and drought tolerant flowers.
Thousands of naturalised daffodils carpet the lawns in September, and through the summer months the herbaceous border features Diggers perennials and grasses. The garden culminates in an extravagant display in March for our Autumn Festival. May marks the end of our gardening year with a blaze of autumn-coloured trees and late perennials.
Cocooned in the Wombat State Forest, the bush garden plays host to a variety of native birds, as well as being a place of restful contemplation. The natural spring of Koban's pool is a cool place to escape the summer heat.
“Absolutely delightful, enchanting...I left feeling inspired, uplifted and serene"- visitor feedback March 2013.
The Diggers Club is committed to sustainable gardening and visitors will find inspirational ideas for gardening organically, becoming more self-sufficient and saving precious water while still enjoying nature's bounty.
We are continually refining the garden, looking towards a greener future. As the previous owner, Tommy Garnett, once wrote, "No garden is ever finished, for gardens are apt to be transitory creations". We hope you enjoy your visit to the Garden of St Erth.
