"Mostly Roses" a visit to Seamus Johnston's Newlands Rose Gardens

Needles, Hill Road, Newlands 

 We visited ‘Mostly Roses’, Seamus Johnston’s beautiful rose gardens in Newlands in the South West this time last year. Seamus has kindly invited us to visit again when the roses are at their best. The event is designed to be a casual day, drive yourself and/or a friend by car as NO bus is organized for this day.  Friends can come to this event.  There will be a $5 entry fee per person which Jan will collect from you on arrival at the gardens.   We will meet at 10.30am as the gardens are extensive. 

 

Please wear flat comfortable shoes, take a water bottle and a hat as it can get hot. 

‘Mostly Roses’ is approximately 220 kilometres from Perth.  It is south of Donnybrook but before you come to Kirup.  It’s on the left hand side of the road travelling south.  As you come around a bend in the road you will notice roses on a slope in the paddocks, travel a little way further and you will come to the turn to drive into the property.

 

We will disperse after viewing the gardens around 12 noon and you can either take your own picnic lunch and have it on the banks of the river in Donnybrook or call into a café. 

On heading back to Perth you can treat yourself with a stop off at Boyanup and browse the ‘Rustic French Living’ shop. They also have good coffee. 

Please advise Jan 0400 132 885 OR EMAIL if you are planning to come to this event.

Many of us have attended meetings and helped in the rose garden at Falls Farm - but how much do you know about the building's history and restoration? Who started the Rose Garden, why did they, and how did it begin? Why did PRHRiA become involved with looking after the roses? Find out! 

Please bring a plate of food to share at lunch, which will follow Pauline's talk.
