Colour of spring

It is halfway through spring, the sun is shining and roses are beginning to bloom at the Morwell Centenary Rose Garden.

About 3000 roses are planted in more than 100 garden beds – maintained on a weekly basis by about 40 volunteers.

Friends of the Garden chair Del Matthews said there were quite a variety to enjoy, inviting the community to make the most of Morwell’s roses, in flower until about May.

Be sure to visit the Valley’s pride and joy – one of three Australian gardens to receive a World Federation of Rose Societies Award of Garden Excellence.

The garden, located at the corner of Commercial Road and Maryvale Crescent, is open all hours of the day.
