A citrus grove of Cumquat, grapefruit and orange trees dedicated to a much loved, departed family member – masses of rosemary and lavender, thyme, parsley and bay, used daily and dotted with insect attracting and companion plants – sedum, comfrey and calendula. This is truly a working garden, not even our construction stopped the foraging of free range chooks. The garden is mature, mediterranean in style with the pergola set over two of a seven tiered landscape. You could be forgiven thinking of Tuscany or Provence with long ago created rock walls, instead your views are to the west, towards Melbourne city and over Port Phillip Bay.
