EVERYONE is invited to visit five beautiful gardens owned by members of the Apsley community on November 2 and 3.
Mark and Cindy Cross will open up their Amber Ridge Homestead which is 5km on the Edenhope side of Apsley at 1670 Wimmera Hwy.
The five acre property includes a large orchard, vegetable gardens, roses, young trees, a cut flower garden and more.
The couple will be on-hand to answer any questions guests might have and ex-wholesale plants will be for sale.
The second open garden is Apsley Estate which belongs to Cindy's mother Lucy Gruetzner.
Located on Benayeo Rd, it is a well established five acre garden featuring trees, over 100 roses and a Japanese garden.
Hazel Munn will also open up Ferndale in Langkoop which is five acres of established rambling garden with water features and trees.
The final two gardens are smaller in size within the town.
June Kenton's Kentonville has miniature bushland natives and a cottage garden, while Charlie's Place which is owned by Di Thorpe has a variety of colours, natives, a vegetable garden and two miniature ponies.
The gardens will be open from 10am to 5pm, Victorian time, on Saturday and Sunday.
Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be available in Amber Ridge Farm Shop, Nursery and Cafe, just 1km from the Amber Ridge Homestead, throughout the day.
The cost is $5 entry to each garden, or $15 for a group ticket which can be bought at the entrance of any of the gardens.
Each garden is wheelchair and pram friendly and children can enter for free.
All proceeds from the weekend will be donated to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
