Late Spring ...and so many plants in the garden are flowering. The frangipani are looking glorious, the bougainvillea are out, the petals of the golden shower tree are falling. Somany flowers and so many butterflies. the monarchs returned a bit later this year.
Courses and Workshops​.  July - Garden and Planting Design - One day per week for five weeks.
​​​​​​​Cutting back continues but we have to be a bit more selective/gentle at this time of year.
Boundary work. The Caesallpinia pulcherrimas continue to grow. Just hoping they will flower soon.
White Garden. ​ This is still a work in progress but we aim to have it finished by the end of June.
Palm Garden. Clearance work continues.
Lotus Pond.  Yep. iI dererves its own name as the lotus are gradually taking over the small upper pond near the Arum Garden.
Visitor Numbers  are increasing. Record numbers in fact! Great news. We hope this continues. Increased advertising, more road signs and increasing Andromeda's visibility to local businesses are part of our plans for this year
