The Butler Garden
Judy Butler’s eclectic acre of garden has evolved over 30 years. What began as a farm paddock surrounding a Greg Burgess designed house is now a flourishing mix of established fruit trees, native food plants, and trees and vegetable gardens.
In our food garden
I grow herbs all year and loads of seasonal vegetables and fruit including, plentiful pumpkins and zucchini. I especially love harvesting raspberries, strawberries, tomatoes, and beans. I preserve, dehydrate, pickle, jam, or freeze any excess fruit and vegetables.
Standout sustainable practices
I use the no-dig method for growing potatoes all year. I compost everything possible and use aged compost on the veggie garden.
Top tip for novice gardeners
Research different ways to garden. Join a garden club or community garden for help from more experienced gardeners. GIVE IT A GO.
Look out for
The range of native food plants and trees, nine beehives, chooks, fishponds, a frog pond, and a worm farm.
