Winter at the Heritage Garden

Keep the cold of winter away, rugged up in front of the cosy open fire or venture outside for beautiful scenes like these.

In the garden it is a dormant time for our plants. We get busy with pruning over 200 roses…………so the garden looks a mess for a month or two. When we finally clear away the prunings, we get a real sense of the bones of the garden. Many of our trees are deciduous, so the form becomes very visible and it has a charm all of its own. It is cold here in the Clare Valley in winter and we get lots of frosts because we are low down in a valley.
