THIS year’s Perth Royal Show will feature a Waterwise Garden designed by The Garden Guru’s Trevor Cochrane and presented by Water Corporation and the Royal Agricultural Society.

The 1200sq m display will be WA’s largest demonstration garden, blending contemporary design with ancient gardens and featuring 80 varieties of waterwise plants from dry climates around the world.

Cochrane has created six waterwise verge gardens with features ranging from a traditional Aboriginal meeting place interpretation and a kitchen garden with living edible walls and food production concepts.

Visitors can also stop by the Water Dome for advice, information and giveaways.

The Perth Royal Show is on from September 24 to October 1.
