Garden Guide

Wildwood is the creation of plant & garden enthusiast Wayne & Sue Tapping. They began this garden more than 30 years ago & also opened a retail nursery at nearby North Richmond. The Nursery closed in 2010, allowing the couple to pursue their dream ...


The colours of Autumn are best viewed viewed through late April & early May & continuing until the season finishes in June. Having been described by visitors as 'Heaven on Earth' when the vibrant colours of the leaves change through a magnificent range of gold, red, orange, yellow, burgundy & scarlet followed by the ever playful carpeting of leaves which totally excite the children (big & small) - This time of year is a must if you love the garden.  More Info »


Salvia shows are held throughout April where on display in the garden are over 120 varieties with many on sale in the nursery. Beginning in April, 2018 this show has fast gained popularity because they are so easy to grow, long flowering & a mass of blooms - who could resist. A brand new blue Salvia garden has been planted in the garden & many others as well. We now have almost a Salvia to suit every position.  More Info »

Salvia Beds are massed in colour during April & May with new varieties being added every year.

Visitor Comments

A beautiful garden set in a lovely cool climate area. Well worth a visit, plenty to look at and the owners have gone to great lengths to put up very helpful signage, not only in relation to the type of plants in a particular area, but also advising of sloping ground, water etc, very impressive.
