Lovingly tended to by our Head Gardener, The Kitchen Garden is a celebration of creativity and Mother Nature, with a focus on edible flowers and herbs. See beds dedicated to providing habitat for beneficial insects, including a variety of flower sizes to accommodate the needs of European bees down to our resident family of native Australian stingless bees.
We use multi species green manure to rejuvenate soil and feed microbial life after heavy cropping. Mulching is essential in this climate, we use RockyPoint Sugarcane which we highly recommend plus Rockypoint Active8 and Monash Rock dust.
Every flower planted is edible. They are picked daily by Wild Canary chefs for the seasonal menu, especially for their famous cakes. The Head Gardener works closely with Executive Chef Glen Barratt to share planting plans and inspiration. Based on organic and holistic principles and rejuvenating soil life, the planting layouts within the Kitchen Garden change with season and weather.
The kitchen garden is a fabulous demonstration space and a working garden for Wild Canary. The gardens are an ever-changing entity showcasing seasonal plants that you can purchase from the nursery and plant in your garden at home.
