Janine’s Open Garden 11th And 12th Feb 2017

Due to popular demand my beautiful Karrinyup garden will be open to the public one last time. I have been busy getting the garden ready and it is looking fantastic. My poinciana is just about to burst forth with its brilliant vermillion flowers and the Frangipanis fill the air with their sweet fragrance. This garden has won many awards and now that is 8 years young, the trees are providing shade and creating a micro climate for the under plantings. I just love my garden and nothing looks better than a loved garden.

Just a little information about the garden which comprises three distinctive courtyards and with its lush tropical planting and elegant water features, it’s a must visit. My philosophy is that a house should look like it’s been ‘planted’ in the garden. See what’s possible on a small block or just come and enjoy this well designed landscape for its lush and abundant planting and tranquil ambience.

The Open Garden is being hosted by OPEN GARDENS WEST COAST which is the new Open garden scheme for WA. Please go to their website to download a complete list of the plants in my garden. Opening times are 10am to 4.30pm both days. I will be giving a talk at 2pm both days on the creation of my garden. Look forward to seeing you here. Entry is $7 (Open Gardens West Coast is a not for profit organisation and entry fees go towards discovering and promoting new gardens for WA garden lovers to visit)
