Winter is well upon us and despite the fact that many plants have gone into dormancy, there is still much to see in the SkyHigh gardens. We have had some good rainfall up here on the mountain, and our tanks are at near capacity.
Some early Azaleas and Camellias are flowering and the exquisite Camellia sasanqua “Lutchuensis” is in full bud, ready to burst into a mass of tiny white scented blooms. The Hellebores are just beginning to flower, and will soon be putting on an absolutely stunning show.
Our mass planted Daffodils are just beginning to pop through the soil. These were planted by budding young gardeners who joined in on the activities during Children’s Week at SkyHigh during the previous two Easter breaks. These are sure to please, as they put on a stunning display during late Winter and Spring.
The native Banksias and Correas are in full flower, supplying a valuable winter source of nectar for the local birdlife.
So come on up to SkyHigh, there’s plenty to see and experience. You could enjoy the garden and the forest walks, tackle the maze, and then try coffee and cake or a delicious meal by the inviting open fire in our bistro.
