Jim Fogarty, Andrew Laidlaw and Tim Entwisle et al have their own interpretation of what a garden is. They may have shared many similar childhood experiences, such as the scent of rosemary around the sandpit, planting carrots as a five year old, or running free in the Australian bush, but their journeys are diverse and collectively they offer us a wealth of ideas for garden making in the 21st Century.

‘Cluanie Garden’ Notes

Cluanie is an historic property at Koonwarra in South Gippsland. The old homestead, sited at the top of a mound, has gradually disappearing behind a swath of greenery all planted in the last seven years. You enter the property via a winding driveway bordered by paddocks and contented cattle. Originally called Lyrebird Mound, the property was renamed Cluanie by the MacDonald family in 1904.

Anne has drawn on the lovely garden Mrs MacDonald created during the 1930s and ’40s. It is an old fashioned country garden of shrubs, trees and curved garden beds interspersed with lawns. The garden of just over half an acre is divided into various rooms which emphasise each aspect of the house.

At the western end of the homestead there are raised vegetable beds surrounded by a small grove of citrus trees. Facing north, French doors from the kitchen open to a back veranda shaded by ornamental grapes which form a wall of green to the large courtyard. Hedges of Metrosideros and Jasmine enclose a garden of Rugosa roses, Crab Apples, Flax, and Euphorbias. The southern aspect has a circular gravelled courtyard and in the shade of the house Anne has indulged in many favourite shade loving plants such as Tree Ferns, Ligularias, Fuchsias, Liriopes and Hydrangeas. The opposite side of the gravel circle gets full sun and has been mass planted with various Salvias, Lilly Pilly, Sparmarnia and Eucomis.

In 2016 the wide formal veranda on the eastern aspect had the original iron lace restored to its former glory after lying in a shed for over thirty years. The view from the veranda takes in a semicircular bed of Flax, Escallonia, Ceanothus, Crab Apple and Ginkgo. Beyond is the orchard which is already producing an abundance of fruit.

The setting in the rolling hills is lovely and thanks to abundant water and rich red soil the garden has grown at a rapid rate. The mixture of shrubberies, perennial plantings and trees is set against a wonderful backdrop of century old Oaks, Elms and Cypress.

Eurambeen Historic Homestead and Gardens

The Gardens at Eurambeen Historic Homestead and Gardens are open to groups by appointment and will be open to the public on the 19th and 20th of November 2016. See the News page for details.

The gardens date back to the 1850 when the original Homestead was built. The original 1850s gardens were productive fruit and vegetable gardens.  There is a large remnant Feijoa which dates back to that time which continues to thrive in the gardens.

The most significant part of the garden is the three acre garden designed by Edna Walling. The Walling garden was commissioned by the Beggs family when the home was extended in 1927. Recently the Australian Historic Garden Society has provided a grant to restore the Walling Gardens with that work commencing in 2013.

There is more information on the grant and the Australian Historic Garden Society on our news page. To find out more about the Australian Historic Garden Society visit: Australian Garden History Society

Illustrated Talk by Dr Anne Vale

Influential Australian Garden People

Listen to the stories of Australia’s influential Mind Shapers and Garden Creators many of whom  share many similar experiences. The scent of rosemary around the sandpit, planting carrots as a five year old, or running free in the Australian bush are just some of the common childhood experiences that have sparked an interest in the natural world for this generation. Some have come to garden making or writing through science, architecture or the arts. Collectively they have a wealth of expertise, what makes them unique is their passion and individual vision for garden making in Australia in the 21st century. We can journey with them as they relate their own experience within the context of increased urbanisation, shifts in lifestyle choices and concern for environmental sustainability. As Australia negotiates this transition, important questions arise about the future shape of our gardens and our connection to them. Above all else, this generation represents a fundamental shift in the values and beliefs attached by our society to nature, landscape and cultivated spaces.
