Green thumbs rejoice – a special event just for you is coming to Wollondilly next month.

The inaugural Picton Rotary Wollondilly Open Garden Trail is a fantastic opportunity for nature-lovers to experience the best gardens the shire has to offer.

The trail takes attendees to six previous winners of the Wollondilly Garden Competition, while raising money for storm relief after June’s devastating weather events.

Rotary’s Steven Anderson, whose own Thirlmere garden Windsong, on Mulholland Road, is one open for perusal.

Mr Anderson said guests would have a great time.

“Rotary will have guides on every garden gate,” he said.

“The owners will be available all day to answer questions and show people around.

“There’s a lot of variety in each of the gardens, which are cottage and homestead gardens.”

Mr Anderson said October was the perfect time to view the gardens.

Guests will also be encouraged to visit Picton’s local eateries and stores.

“This is all about Picton and giving the town a boost,” he said.

The trail takes in three gardens in Thirlmere, one in Couridjah and two in Picton.

The Wollondilly Garden Trail will be held on Sunday, October 16 from 9am-5pm. Entry is $5 a person for one garden, $15 a person for six gardens or $25 a couple/family for six gardens.
