One of the feature plantings at Wildwood Garden is the driveway planting of ornamental flowering cherrie which flower in mid September.

"As many visitors want to see the trees in full bloom we try to guess when they'll be looking their best," say Sue and Wayne Tapping. "Now the buds are swelling and some flowers are out we are forecasting that they'll be fully out next week peaking on Saturday September 14."

Wind and rain or a sudden cold snap or heatwave can affect the timing of any flower display but Sue says there's so much in flower that there's plenty to enjoy throughout the garden.

"I took this photograph of the trees today (September 6) and you can see that some flowers are out but there's a mass of buds still to open," Sue adds.

As Bilpin is an area known for its cool climate gardens and orchards, the area is looking pretty spectacular at the moment says Wayne.

Wildwood Garden is open for spring viewing every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday until November 4 including public holidays. Admission to the garden is $10 (concession $8, children under 16 free). There's also a cafe, gift shop and nursery to enjoy.

The garden is at 29 Powells Road, Bilpin.
