Thousands flock to Maitland Garden Ramble to see region's most picturesque yards

An “absolutely fabulous” turnout of thousands enjoyed a meander through the finest yards in Maitland over the weekend, with the Black and White Committee’s Garden Ramble drawing spectators from both the Hunter and abroad.  

President of the Black and White Committee, Heather McLaren, said between 3000-4000 people walked through the eight gardens on display throughout Saturday and Sunday. 

She put the success of this year’s ramble down to the amount of variety on offer.

“Every home is different, every garden is different and there’s something for everyone,” she said. 

Heather thanked gardeners for their efforts throughout a dry winter, as well as supporters of the event. 

“People have just been wonderful in their support,” she said.
