The Monsgarden Rose Nursery was bought in 2005, and after years of clearing black wattle and brambles, the garden could finally be planted. The existing large trees formed an exquisite backdrop to the thousands of plants that were added during the subsequent years. The rose nursery was designed on the ruins of the old home, which was destroyed by fire in 2013, and is shaped like a rose. It is a unique garden with an old worldly charm.
