We’re VERY excited!
Shortly we’re launching the first DVD of a series celebrating the design and character of Australia’s greatest gardens!
Last spring we filmed Albion Farm Gardens – three stunning, adjacent family gardens set in the hamlet of Woodville, near Maitland in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales.
Over three days our presenter Eamonn Katter drew out the story of the gardens and owners. He explored the gardens’ features: the lakes, and signature wisteria walks, roses, orchards and vegetable gardens – all seamlessly integrated.
The central garden, Albion Farm, is owned by Philip and Sandy Redman who have been gardening with verve over the last fifteen years, since Phil retired from his veterinary practice, and Sandy’s family responsibilities eased.
Many of their garden dreams were inspired by extensive travels and time spent living abroad.
On the north side is Gracemere, owned by the Redman’s daughter Kate, her husband Ged and their five beautiful young girls.
…while on the south side the evolving garden at Albion Way belongs to their son Ben and his family who live in China.
This is just a tiny selection of images. The beautiful gardens are brimful with myriad, alluring vignettes – and even more ideas!
Eamonn explored the folly, and later finally discovered the Secret Garden…
We can hardly wait – the DVD is looking wonderful!
The gardens are a perfect blend of ornamentation and productivity.
Stonework is one of the gardens’ very special features – it seems that no project is too daunting for the family to tackle.
So where can you buy Our Australian Gardens first DVD?
On our website very soon!
