Geelong Botanic Gardens

I had a reason go to Geelong today, so added in a visit to the botanic gardens because the Friends' Nursery is open on Wednesday mornings.

Perennial borders looking fantastic:

Also came across their wonderful ginkgo:
This tree is on the National Trust's Register of Significant Trees.

We enjoyed morning tea in the gardens. A few plants from the nursery came home, as well as a few more from the Wombat Gully nursery.

The main reason for my trip to Geelong will have to wait for another blog post once I have tidied up my sewing room a bit.


  1. what an absolutely beautiful border--you have so many lovely garden spots...not so many around here...too much development...Hugs, julierose

  2. Gorgeous! What a beautiful place to visit.

  3. Your garden is up there with botanical gardens. Exciting to buy more interesting plants, I love that ginkgo tree, often call in the Geelong to gather some fallen leaves.

  4. That gingko tree must be well over 100 years old, it is huge.
    Regional botanical gardens are always interesting, we reap the benefit of Victorian era foresight and wealth. And the current 'friends of' who are so dedicated.

  5. Hi Vireya what a beautiful place,thankyou for sharing xx


  6. It is a beautiful walk through the botanical garden. Marie
