The gardening season officially begins on January 1st and ends on December 31. – Marie Huston
Although you are in the Sunshine State of Queensland on Tamborine Mountain you can enjoy plenty of sunshine without the humidity of the more Northern areas of the State. The temperature on the mountain is regularly 4 degrees cooler than on the Gold Coast or in Brisbane.
Because of the latitude and the cooler temperature we are able to plant and grow many more cold climate plants as well as many tropical beauties. So in the springtime we can have cold climate bulbs like daffodils and jonquils then the wonderful warm climate clivias and hippeastrums. Followed by the cherry blossoms on the Cherry Tree Walk.

Clivias cream and orange
Summer brings our wonderful blue agapanthus and all colours of hydrangeas putting on a great show.
Autumn and the Japanese maples put on a great display of colour especially in the Japanese Garden. You will be delighted with a glimpse of our beloved ‘Misty Mountain’
In the Winter you can wake to beautiful sunny days but experience the vista of the bare trees while the magnolias burst forth into their spring glory again.
