Surrounded by pastureland which gives it
a peaceful rural atmosphere, Greenlaw has been developed from bare
lawn since 1991.
Planned in garden rooms with winding paths
and pergolas, this 0.4 hectare garden is softened with self-seeding
A sunken garden, edged with brick, featuring a sundial and planted
with cream roses and lavender, lends a semi-formal air.
The garden features some 150 old roses,
including favourites such as 'Souvenir de Malmaison' and 'Albertine'
which adorn the house verandah. Spring at Greenlaw is a time of
cherry blossom, bulbs, magnolias and forget-me-nots. The perennials,
roses and daisies take over in summer, then the silver birches and
gleditsia feature in autumn along with tall blue salvias, roses
and perennial lobelias.
Greenlaw is open October to May by arrangement,
and the cost is $5 per person. For groups, a garden visit with morning or afternoon tea is available
by arrangement for $16pp including entry, and a lunch option is available for $20pp including entry.
The nursery has perennials for sale.
