For those who don’t already know our story here goes – My husband (Daniel) and I (Di) have four kids 28,26,17 & 15. We moved to Ballarat from Melb 9 years ago. We were serial house flippers (6 houses in 7 years aka as the Boorondara rocket renovators) and also ran a small landscape business on the side.

We bought our first B & B in Daylesford in 2009 this gave us our first taste of country living. We were hooked, so in 2011 we made the tree change to a gorgeous 60 acre farm in Springmount and ran the stunning Victorian homestead and grounds as a very successful B & B and wedding venue (Aghadoe Estate). We renovated the original shearing shed into our home and hosted the weddings in the original stables. We bred Scottish Highlands, White Galloways and Belted Galloway cattle. We also breed Black Suffolk sheep. After close to 400 accommodation bookings and over 100 weddings we decided it was time for a change. We sold that property last year and bought 5 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens on the lake at Learmonth @oakhillestate.

So when we are not busy renovating our amazing new warehouse or setting up our new business we are outside gardening and further developing our expansive garden. It consists of over 100 heritage roses, many perennial borders, 300m2 veggie patch, extensive orchard, pear walks, oak walk and a newly built poly tunnel in which we are propagating new plant babies.

We are planning to inject into our new business our passion and love for gardening and hope we can encourage others to grow and enjoy plants too. We are also super excited to bring our extensive knowledge of running a wedding venue into our new function and workshop space. Fingers crossed we will be taking function bookings as soon as COVID restrictions allow 🤞🏻 Now you know a little about us, we are so looking forward to meeting some our new followers and fellow plant lovers!! 🌱🌵🌿💚
