Open Garden at Flaxton

Getting very close to 15-16th NOVEMBER weekend when the garden of Ann and Geoff Hocking, "Tanderra House" Flaxton will open as part of Open gardens Australia
Address: 11 Flaxton Mill Rd, Flaxton.
Opening time is 10am-4.30pm.  and admissionis $8.00 (under 18 free) funds raisd for charity.
The historic 1908 House is complemented by a beautifully maintained, well balanced and spacious garden where mature flowering trees and shrubs contrast effectively with sweeping lawns. Splendid Magnolia grandiflora, hardy camellias, gardenias, agapanthus, heliconias, bromeliads and palms. Vegetable garden and fruit trees. Refreshments are being served and a plant stall will be in place for those inspired to take some gardening home.

In the mean time "The Shambles" is getting ready for 50 bus visitors from Toowoomba on Wednesday for morning tea and a inspection of the garden. In spite of protracted dry and now hot weather the garden is lush, green and has plenty of spring flowers to show off
