Gardens on the edge welcome visitors
Six rambling country-style gardens showcasing a variety of colourful plants will be open to the public as part of Gardening on the Edge from June 10-11 in the Maleny hinterland.
The Maleny Garden Club event is in its second year with the main venue located at Maleny High School. Admission is free.
Event spokesperson Margaret Harper said the gardens showcased a blend of temperate and sub-tropical plantings.
"It is a wonderful time of year for a broad range of plants flowing in the gardens including camellias, roses, azaleas, tropical rhododendrons and magnolias," Mrs Harper said.
"The event name refers to our gardens being on the edge of the Blackall Range with its rolling green hills well suited to establishing fertile and colourful gardens."
Tickets and a map to the open gardens will be available for $6.
The hall will be open from 9am to 4pm and feature a range of stalls and specialist growers including, camellias, orchids and old-fashioned roses. Good value plants will be available from the club's plant stall.
