THE fifth annual Creswick Garden Lovers event will be held this weekend.

From commercial to established private gardens, the Business and Tourism Creswick Inc. event sees local amateur gardeners, artisans and green thumbs open their garden oases to the public to raise funds for projects within the town.

Six private gardens and eight commercial gardens, including Overwrought Sculpture Garden and Gallery, the Maze House and Bells Water Gardens will open their gates for public viewing from 9am on November 10 and 11.

Entry is free to commercial gardens, while entry to the private gardens, such as Alberton, Charnwood, Mon Repose and Noonameena costs $5 for adults.

Other events including Creswick Garden Club’s annual flower show at the town hall will be held concurrently. Maps and tickets can be collected from Creswick Neighbourhood Centre.
