Take a stroll through the gardens ……
The spacious gardens of the Olde Horsham Village was planted in a typical English style with open lawn areas and large trees. Due to years of drought conditions and ongoing water restrictions a change in garden style has been necessary with Australian native plants being added to the mixture of exotic and cottage garden plants throughout the garden.
Interest has been created in the garden by the use of various collectables, sculptures, statues and old farm implements. Cast iron camp ovens are used as pots for succulents and half wine barrels are planted with grass trees Many well known favourites can be found throughout the garden. These include pelargoniums, geraniums, daisies, alyssum, daylilies, irises, seaside daisies and standard, bush and climbing roses.
More shaded areas have plantings of clivias, bromeliads, and azaleas. A large variety of succulents, in beds and pots, have been propagated from cuttings. Many Australian native plants have been planted following advice from local garden guru, Ted Brown of the Wimmera Native Nursery at Dimboola, who supplied plants such as species of correa, eremophila, callistemon, grevillea, myoporum, westringia, lavatera, alyogyne, dianella, and lomandra.
As well as these attractive plants being better suited to the climate of the Wimmera. The owners have worked hard to create a garden that which not only suits the style of the Olde Horsham but is a place a little different.
