The Pinjarra Garden Day at historic Edenvale homestead on Sunday, October 2, is filling fast with a range of personalities and activities.

Darren Seinor from the Garden Gurus will look at garden problems, experienced gardener John Bodycoat will help with vegetable growing problems, Bob Melville will choose the best roses for the South-West and Perth naturalist Eric McCrum will advise on birds and ecology in the garden.

There will also be a host of specialist gardening groups.

Morning and afternoon teas and light lunches will be provided at the Anglican Parish Hall. The Heritage Tearooms will have a new menu to sample.

Children’s activities will be a highlight – the magical fairy dell, filled with gorgeous fairies, will be bigger and better than ever – with face painting, games and storytelling.

All fairies and elves entering the best-dressed fairy and elf competition will be treated to a mini high tea.

A best-decorated bike competition and an innovative waterwise container garden competition for little hands will fill the day with colour and creativity.

Pony rides, scarecrow building and a miniature animal farm will add to the fun.

Groups including the Roger May Machinery Museum, Pinjarra Patchwork and Quilting Group, Murray District Historical Society, Murray District Arts and Crafts Society, Pinjarra Community Gardens and Old Blythewood will be open on the day.

A couple of spots are still available for stalls and goods must be home-made or hand created.
