Tamborine Mountain to get a Springtime in its step

EIGHT private gardens will be on show during the 2016 Springtime on the Mountain festival, which will run from September 23-25 at Tamborine Mountain.

The garden offerings will range from quaint cottage gardens to broad, open expanses during the annual display of gardening design and skills.

Frances and David Cowper are working to prepare their two-hectare property, Vistas, for the event. The garden includes a Japanese section, secluded spaces, a large pond and sweeping driveway entry.

"My favourite area of the garden changes from season to season," Frances said.
