On Sunday I headed down to Heronswood on the Mornington Peninsula in Melbourne which is also the home of The Diggers Club.  Heronswood is a historic property that was built in 1864 and is classified by the National Trust of Australia. The garden has extensive plantings of flowers, including perennial borders, dry climate and cottage plants and vegetable gardens.

You can have lunch or afternoon tea at the cafe.  The menu at Heronswood changes weekly within the seasons, just as the gardens do.  You can sit under the old tree outside the cafe or in the beautiful old home, sitting in the garden we were able to admire the gorgeous views out to the bay and then have a wander through the grounds.


 The nursery has an extensive range of heirloom plants and seeds, plus garden hardware and books.   You can join the Diggers Club here.


 There are many articles and garden advice available from the Diggers Club to help you create your own beautiful garden.
