Garden Hero – The Garden Vineyard
Story Title: Garden Hero – The Garden Vineyard
Date: May 1st 2010
Presenter: Neville Passmore
This week our hero gardens come to us from the Gippsland area south of Melbourne and close to the coast, it's called The Garden Vineyard.
- The vines bear Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris grapes and distinctive wines which are available from the cellar door.
- The glorious gardens that surround the house have a strong English/European flavour but are firmly rooted in the Australian landscape.
- There are two border gardens which are all about exuberance. The perennial border is a stunning exhibition of colour ending with a show stopping bed of red dahlias. The silver borders are a mix of drought tough grey and silver leaf shrubs meticulously trimmed into pleasing rounded shapes.
- There is also a Wedding Garden and a Native Garden.
