The Giving Garden

Today we visited Ian and Judy Wintle's garden as part of the Open Gardens Australia scheme.  The garden was very tidy and well laid out and there were plenty of plants for sale too.  I'm not sure I've ever seen so many gingers and bromeliads in one garden before.  We spotted a few out of the 70 odd tropical fruit trees but I'm sure there were plenty we missed.

Here are some photos I took of the garden.

This little friend wasn't shy and stayed around for the photo opportunity
Haemanthus multiflorus
Coffea arabica
Ceropegia woodii 'Chain of Hearts'
Good to see even an open garden isn't safe from  random tomato sproutings
Worm farm diorama
Aristolochia gigantea

Homalocladium platycladum 'Tapeworm plant'
Lychee - 'Tai-So'
This was my favourite - Aglaonema pictum 'Tricolor'

Bromeliad aclantarea 'Grace Goode'
