John Banasiewicz is the president of the Western Australian Fern Society and his garden is a magnificent demonstration of his passions for plant collecting. Paths weave around the garden, densely planted with the understory filled with a wide collection of ferns, palms, thousands of bromeliads, cycads, cordylines and heliconias, creating the effect of a tropical and lush haven. Pockets of bamboo, ponds containing water lilies, many cactus plants and a fascinating display of Bonsai trees add to the many facets of this beautiful garden.
Overall the garden is designed in shades of green with splashes of colour from bromeliads and some unusual anthuriums. There are several shade houses containing his collection of tassel ferns and elkhorns.
There is also a productive vegie patch, and fruit and nut trees, all contained in acres of natural bush, with the drive way showing off many cultivated and tended native plants.
