Benalla Garden Club members opened their gardens for the recent Benalla Festival.

Varying in size from a typical town block to a larger lifestyle holding of five acres, the four gardens were an inspiration to visitors and featured a diversity of styles — from 400 roses in bloom in the garden of Heather and Max Rolls, to the Japanese-inspired courtyard of Kathleen and Trevor Yates.

Plant selection varied according to the owners’ preference, and ranged from tropical orchids to desert cacti.

Cr Suzy Martin said the committee appreciated the efforts the garden club had put into showcasing Benalla.

‘‘This is a new event and I’m hoping the garden club has the energy and the passion to keep it going,’’ she said

The dedicated and enthusiastic members of the garden club meet at Benalla Bowls Club on the first Tuesday of each month, and visitors are most welcome.
