Horners Plot

Tales from Horners Plot

A gardener from Horners Plot in Perth explains what he likes about the 'little gem' hidden away in the city centre.

It can be a bit wet at times, but usually I’ve found that the weather looks a lot worse from the inside looking out on it. If you keep working through the rain, generally you’ll find it’s disappeared again and the sun has come out! I always try to salvage something out of a day – I don’t like a whole day to go by and get nothing done. If you get lots of little bits done, by the end of the week you have achieved what you wanted to. Gardening is therapeutic, HUGELY therapeutic. It’s also a chance to be part of a team. I quite like being part of a team – working away on your own can be a bit isolating at times. It’s nice to have someone to talk to.
