We will be running a series of free demonstrations on three different stages all day at the Traditional Arts Fair
Ryan is Buda’s Garden Curator. This will be a brief history of the arts and crafts movement and how this found expression in gardens, and also relating this to the Leveny family and the gardens at Buda.
Helen has taught in the fields of both general horticulture and viticulture and has been a volunteer at Buda since the 1980s. She enjoys a national and international reputation for her pioneering research and unique expertise. Successful gardens look good because they are full of healthy plants and are well maintained. Helen will look at the right plants, in the right place, at the right time, combined with regular attention.
Ryan is Buda’s Garden curator. We will look at selecting plants for cohesive plant combinations. As well as looking at flower and foliage colour, flowering heights and times we will also look at plant and flower form and the use of repetition.

Rosie Pamic will talk about how they started their farm Squirrel Gully Saffron, what you need to grow good saffron, how to get the most out of saffron, what it goes well with and she will explain what cultured butter saffron is and how to make it.
