Take Tea at Heatherly
Tuesday, October 11th, 2011
As some of you might know, the Heatherly Design office is located on our family’s farming property 90 minutes north east of Melbourne. One of my other passions is gardening and through the Australian Open Garden Scheme we are opening our garden the weekend of November 12th and 13th. A perfect excuse to come and say hello, wander our 3 acres of perennial and rose borders, see my husband’s fountain he personally designed and built in our forecourt and admire the vistas in our beautiful valley through to the Cathedral Ranges. Our local school is “going all out” with a local produce stall and devonshire teas will be served on the verandah. Another beautiful Paul Bangay garden is open down the road so lots to admire including the opportunity to visit our Heatherly Green Tea Plantation.
My gorgeous husband has agreed to extend our open garden offering to include his 30 acres of green tea which is actually a camelia plant (all 170,000 of them!). We will be in the midst of harvesting so it will be a stunning sight. So for all those green tea drinkers, here is your chance to see how it is grown and harvested so close to Melbourne. Go to www.tworiversgreentea.com.au for further details. For garden lovers and those that just want to have a sticky on where Heatherly Design Bedheads began all those years ago in our woolshed, this is your chance. We look forward to seeing you here at Heatherly and sharing a cup of green tea on the verandah with you.
