Garden Visit to a Repton Oasis

Saturday May 27, 10am
Three years ago, Shann and her family were lucky enough to make the move from Canberra to the delightful hamlet of Repton. A bushland setting opens out on valley views of farmland and circling Osprey. Terraced paths wend down the slope, through palms and frangipani to a pond and banana grove full of potential.
Shann has inherited an established garden mix of natives and exotics.
