THREE passionate gardeners have teamed up to open their gardens and provide a day out in the Perth Hills this weekend.
Stoneville resident Robyn Longley said she had been weeding for about three months in preparation for opening her Short Street property to the public.
“That’s because I don’t use any chemicals,” she said. “So I have been on my hands and knees weeding for months. It’s been such a wet winter.”
Features of the three gardens include annuals, roses and other flowering plants as well as vegetable beds, wicking beds, chickens and fruit orchards.
People can take in all three gardens on Saturday or Sunday or choose to visit just one.
Visitors are encouraged to sit with a ‘cuppa’, buy plants and get tips on potting blueberries, attracting bees and netting for fruit flies.
