Bganz Garden of the Week - The George Pentland Botanic Gardens site is naturally undulating with sandy soil and covers an area of 7.5 hectares. Previously home to a golf course, the site was first developed as Botanic Gardens in 1975 and was named after former Shire Secretary and Town Clerk of the City of Frankston, George Pentland. The plant collection now consists of 500 different Australian native species. Leon Costermans, author of Native Trees and Shrubs of South-Eastern Australia, was very involved with the redesign of the Gardens in the 1990s. The garden beds are mainly divided into two types: systematic, based on Australian plant families (especially of south-eastern Australia), and plants of Frankston and Mornington Peninsula in ecological groupings. Some of the highlights of the Gardens are the Fernery/ Rainforest Area at gate one and Fern Gully located in the middle of the Gardens. The Correa bed (Rutaceae) is beautiful and has a wide variety of Correas. Since 2011, Frankston City Council has invested in substantial capital works at the Gardens. This includes the restoration of the old lake and installation of a rain garden that captures stormwater from Frankston South and assists in improving the water quality before it re-enters the stormwater system and ultimately Kananook Creek. The Gardens are very popular for weddings and for children feeding the ducks. The Gardens also include several barbeques, picnic facilities and a playground. Recent developments include a new barbecue shelter and toilet block with excellent facilities for disabled people and family change rooms. There is new signage for gate entry, and plant information is progressively being added. The Gardens are a popular recreation area for patients and staff of nearby Frankston Hospital as well as the general public.

Bganz Garden of the Week - The Castlemaine Botanical Gardens covers an area of 24 hectares and was gazetted as a reserve in 1860, making it one of the oldest Botanic Gardens in Victoria. It is a great example of a nineteenth century provincial botanic garden and has a formal entry and fountain, ornamental lake, avenues of Oaks, a formal rose garden and areas of intensive horticulture that contrast with open lawns planted with specimen trees. The first curator, Phillip Doran was appointed in 1866 and remained curator for 47 years. It‘s believed he carried out the layout of the gardens. Many of the plants he used came from Ferdinand von Mueller, the government botanist and former director of the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne as well as Daniel Bunce, former Curator of the Geelong Botanic Gardens. The Castlemaine Botanical Gardens is perhaps best known for its collection of large mature trees, particularly conifers, with particularly good examples of Pinus sabiniana (Californian foothill Pine, Gray Pine or Ghost Pine) and Pinus pinea (Stone Pine). Other significant trees include Catalpa bignonioides (Indian Bean Tree), Eucalyptus longifolia (Woolybutt) and a 150-year-old Quercus robur (English Oak) which is the oldest existing planting in the garden. The area west of the creek contains native vegetation and is an important site for the rare Eltham Copper Butterfly. The formal rose garden is thought to have been developed in the 1960’s, with most of the roses being post World War II hybrid tea roses. This garden is unique in that the roses are planted in alphabetical order. The recently refurbished playground has reinvigorated the garden for the community. The site is used by many locals and visitors and is valued in the community as a place for passive recreation, picnics, BBQ’s, weddings and community events. Find out more by visiting the website www.mountalexander.vic.gov.au but better yet, visit this wonderful Central Victorian garden. 2015-07-23T04:44:41+0000

Bganz Garden of the Week - The Hunter Region Botanic GardensThe HRBG is the only botanic gardens in the Hunter Valley. Regarded by many as one of the jewels of the Hunter, the Hunter Region Botanic Gardens has been transformed from a weed-infested 33 hectare bushland site into a botanic collection enjoyed by the community and visitors from around the world. Visitors can enjoy tranquil landscaped gardens, displaying the beauty and diversity of Australian native flora in a natural bushland setting. The result of community initiative and run by volunteers, the Gardens also protect 100 hectares of land in the Tomago sandbeds catchment area, including two wetland habitats. There are 8 kilometres of easy tracks and trails including magnificent wildflower walks. The easy walking trails provide access to the natural bushland with its mature blackbutt, angophoras and swamp mahogany forests and its understorey of hundreds of native plants. The forests are the natural habitat of goannas, wallabies, lizards, brushtail and ringtail possums, sugar gliders, bats, a small group of resident koalas and many birds. The gardens feature over 3000 living specimens. Theme gardens display mainly Australian native plants but include exotics with excellent Orchid and Bromeliad Houses, and an amazing Succulent and Cacti garden. The mission statement of the Gardens is: to grow, study, conserve and promote plants, in particular those of the Hunter Region. Through the hard work of the volunteers and with support from members and sponsors, the Garden’s collections have flourished. The Gardens have a visitors centre, an outdoor café, a gift shop and a reference library. Visitors can enjoy Devonshire teas and light lunches or they can picnic in the gardens.The gardens expand as new displays are developed for recreational, educational and scientific purposes.Find out more by visiting http://www.huntergardens.org.au 2015-07-08T03:33:46+0000
