'The Elms' parkland garden was originally planted with various trees in the 1960's and the garden beds established in the 1970's. It has continually evolved and been refashioned by several owners. Behind a windbreak of Bhutan cypress (Torulosa) and a more recent photinia Red Robin hedge, the parkland consists of mature trees including a beautiful tri-colour European beech, variegated holly, Golden ash, maple, spruces, deodar, a magnificent Ginkgo and Chinese pistachio. In the front circular garden you will see a weeping elm and water feature. Specimen trees around the gazebo include Cupressus cashmeriana and 'Blue Ice'.
The garden beds contain numerous cold climate plants including a stunning range of specimen conifers, roses, agapanthus, hydrangeas, daphne, perennials, annuals and bulbs. Ornamental trees and shrubs comprise Spirea 'Snowmound' and forest pansy. The parkland garden also provides sweeping views of the surrounding rural countryside.
Over the past six years the current owners have nurtured and developed the garden. With an established watering system, mass planting has included a sweep of 'Little Gem' magnolias (hiding a gabion wall containing bricks from the original 'Elms' homestead); a screen of Thuja Smaragd around the water tank; a grove of silver birch; a windbreak boundary of Cupressus Castlewellan Gold and a hedge of teucrium.

'Tremearne' is a 5 acre home garden with well established European exotics first planted in the 1830's when the area was settled by Cornish farmers.
The garden is centred around a huge English elm and a row of poplars which were planted over 150 years ago, and there have been further plantings in the 1950's, 1980's and most recently by us in 2005. The garden itself has several water features, a Monet Bridge, gazebos (one being Kathy's art studio) and other follies such as a temple and Trompe L'oeil gates, surrounded by under plantings of roses, azaleas, annuals and perennials. Extensive rock walls have been recently added.
There will be an Art Exhibition and a coffee van on both days of the Ramble, and plenty of seating so you can relax, enjoy a good coffee and take in the views.
Solomons purchased Shalom in April 2017 to service a growing demand for Jenny's integrative medical practice, the property also allowed us to fall in love with the region. The gardens were established in the 1990s and benefit from established trees, creating a microclimate which allows us to grow a broad spectrum of native and introduced species. Since our purchase we have cleared an acre of blackberry briars and hundreds of elm suckers to open up the landscape, enabling planting of over 1500 plants and bulbs. With a spring fed pond, creek, dam and irrigation system, the plants are thriving. Our 4 alpacas can also be seen grazing in our adjacent paddocks to the north. We hope you enjoy your visit.
The gardens at Rosebank compliment the historic Bank of NSW building, which is now a Guesthouse and Gallery. The bank was completed in 1901 but the garden area was developed later. The array of roses that frame the building on Victoria and Park Street are a feature, flowering for around 6 months of the year.
The gardens are spacious, with secluded alcoves, open spaces and magnificent mature trees. Throughout the year there is a continuous array of colours, with deciduous trees providing a splendid show through autumn and a magnificent backdrop year round, making it ideal for special functions such as weddings and anniversaries.
Planting continues with maples, camellias, bulbs and annuals, and paths wander through the garden leading to special features. The verandas wrap around the building and overlook the garden providing a peaceful place to enjoy the gardens.
The Dixons bought the property in 1993, built a home, and set about establishing a garden as time allowed whilst raising their 6 children. With their dream of creating a world in which you could 'get lost' and their love of the English cottage style, the garden has developed into several distinct areas. The main cottage garden area is filled with roses, shrubs, perennials, and climbers with a pond, bird houses, birdbath and other whimsical features. There is also a small woodland under planted with bluebells and English primroses, a herb garden, vegetable patch with fruit trees, and the beginnings of a hedged meadow leading to the paddock. Despite the setback of a flood in 2010 causing considerable damage, the garden has recovered and continues to mature into the magical space that the family had envisioned 25 years ago.
