Fiona Brockhoff’s name has become synonymous with environmentally sustainable garden design in Australia. Her adventurous use of native plants clipped like topiary, exotic plants climatically suited to locations and use of texture gives her gardens a very distinctive flavour. Often using indigenous plants with colours like muted grey, silver and olive green, she uses shape and form to create spaces rather than short-lived flower colour. Most of her gardens survive on the rain nature sends them and are relatively low maintenance, with the exception of vegetable gardens and chicken runs, which she encourages clients to include.  

Join us to hear Fiona discuss her new book, With Nature, which showcases many of her garden designs, including her own Mornington Peninsula property and labour of love, ‘Karkalla’. Fiona will discuss her landscape design journey and provide tips, design guidance and inspiration for all gardeners to create their very own environmentally sustainable garden.

Bookings are essential.

Please note that the store will close an hour early at 2pm this day to allow us to set up for the event. Doors will reopen to attendees from 2.50pm.
