Be inspired with ideas for your next garden project or just relish the tranquillity a beautiful garden provides. We’re excited to for the first time showcase some of the styles of productive gardens that have helped shape the economic landscape of the Granite Belt.
Braeside (circa 1874). a heritage listed property, is one of the region’s earliest grand homesteads. Seven hectares of a beautiful garden designed by the legendary Carolyn Robinson with the final garden stage now complete
No less magnificent is the first time shown Accommodation Creek Cottages garden. This garden has something for everyone that starts with a blaze of colour, through the careul use of massed agapanthus and cannas, that in turn, compliments the hedging, well-established trees and shrubs.
To showcase something a little outside the box, Possum Lane Farm is an integrated horticulture, regenerative agriculture farm south-west of Stanthorpe. These gardens produces leafy greens, other veggies and herbs for sale locally, hydroponic parsley sold into the Brisbane markets and hosts Queensland’s first commercial hop yard. Over 60% of the property is set aside for biodiversity conservation and the operation is completely solar powered and off grid. Over the next 10 years more areas will be devoted to biodiversity and the farm will work with external partners to promote regenerative practices as well as testing innovations around soil carbon and carbon sequestration more generally.
