24-25 March Open Garden Plant Fair at Lanyon

This weekend Saturday 24 March and Sunday 25 March 2012

The open garden scheme season traditionally ends with the annual plant fair, hosted in turn over the past few years, around the ACT at least, in a sucession of beautiful old homesteads such as Lambrigg and Bellevale. This year its Lanyon’s turn.

Its been a few years since I’ve taken a turn around their gardens so I’ll be interested to see what’s happening, particularly in the veggie patch. The Lanyon Gardener (no name provided) will be speaking about the veggie patch on the hour from 11.00 am to 2.00pm on both Saturday and Sunday. A full list of speakers can be found here. Chef Janet Jeffs will also be speaking, on Saturday only, about organic and biodynamic growing and cooking. And then there are all the stalls to get around!

Directions: From Canberra head south along Tuggeranong Parkway/Drakeford Drive. Turn right onto Tharwa Dve, follow signs to Lanyon Homestead
Open: 10am-4pm. $10.00, no charge for children under 18
