About 8 Durban Street

A formal design outlined by 30cm high hedges of immaculately clipped saltbush makes the front garden appear far larger than its 19x25m. A harmonious combination of indigenous and exotic waterwise plants includes a central fever tree and grasses, all contributing to the calming aesthetic of an essentially European design. The Pride of Madeira is descended from plants Nellie brought from her mother’s garden 45 years ago.         

Jimmy Bayti’s plants are for sale during the Garden Festival and entry to Nellies garden is free.
