Wychwood Garden and Nursery, Mole Creek, is a stunning example of a beautiful temperate garden. It features unusual plants, particularly those that can withstand heat and frost. The garden and nursery cover around one hectare (2.5 acres) and are nestled under the Great Western Tiers, near picturesque Mole Creek, northern Tasmania. Wychwood is a leisurely one-hour drive from Launceston and Devonport, on Highway B12 (Cradle Country Touring Route), the main road to Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, and just near Mole Creek Caves.
The garden features sweeping borders full of perennials, old roses and ornamental grasses plus a fruit and vegetable garden, a heritage apple orchard (with resident geese), water features and woodland areas.
In the creek paddock you will find a medieval-designed grass labyrinth, which is beautiful viewed from the rise above. For plant enthusiasts, a wealth of rare and interesting specimens can be found, including the renowned double white hellebore, numerous pulmonaria cultivars, hardy cyclamens, epimediums, fritillaries, snake bark maples and much more.
Wychwood was recently featured on a stamp released as part of a series celebrating Open Gardens Australia, and a stunning book ‘Wychwood’ is scheduled for release on October 1st, 2014.
