This is the 7th year Alpine has organised the garden tour and to date $140,000 has been raised. The tour this year will be on March 17th and will visit 5 spectacular private gardens on the Central Coast.

Tickets are $250.00 and are limited to a total of 120 people.

The designers who will be present during the day and will speak at the gardens they have designed are Michael Cooke, Adam Eurell , Christopher Owen and James Headland.

The tour will start at Eden Gardens in North Ryde and guests will be transported in coaches to each of the gardens and then return to Eden Gardens in the late afternoon. Morning Tea, lunch and afternoon drinks are provided.

The 5 gardens are quite diverse in their style and location and profile a wide range of plant selections and design ideas. The designer of each garden will give a short talk in the garden on the design process, plants and other interesting stories about the garden.
