Nestled next to the Wombat State Forest are the amazing gardens of St Erth, run by popular gardening group - The Diggers Club. Not only is this a nursery where you WILL become inspired to get out in your own backyard and start cultivating that green thumb, it also has a great cafe for a cool drink or a warm hot choc or coffee. The best bit though is of course the gardens. Lovingly tended with pathways, seating areas, plants from all walks of life that you've never seen before or never seen look so amazing. The gardens are great to discover at any time of year and the seasons dictate which beautiful blooms come next.
Mamma's special mention: Daylesford is just a short drive away, for more beautiful gardens you can't go past Lavandula.
