Last Saturday’s ‘Planty Fierce’ at all 4 Central Coast gardens was an unqualified success … Under a brilliant sky, plant sales were brisk and event goers very pleased to see inspirational, never before opened garden spaces they could relate to, with low risk but interesting plants to take home and try in their own gardens that will thrive in similar coastal growing conditions.

As one ‘Planty Fierce’ attendee put it –  

“Feeling privileged! Planty Fierce did not disappoint. Living Edge was breathtaking; Tabone serene; Paradox an artist’s palette; and Seachanger thrilling. Thank you to owners for opening their very special gardens.”                                                                                                  Michelle Arnebark, President, Green Point Garden Club

Thanks to all those who came along for some or all that           

‘Planty Fierce’ had to offer. It was so good, we might just have to do it all again … !!!!

  1. Thanks Peter, and your team, and of course the inspiring people who so generously shared their private ‘planty’ spaces. It was a rewarding day on so many levels, not least because, as an old Ryde Hort College teacher, I caught up with some brilliant former students who are doing their own landscape magic.

    1. Hi Leigh, an age since I’ve had the chance to respond to your kind comments on ‘Planty Fierce’way back in March. You’ll be pleased to hear another will take place on sat 6th May ’17 so hope to see you agin then and will be sending details out in more posts closer to the date.
