David & Merryle welcome you to Country Farm Perennials
Country Farm Perennials has been operating a nursery in the small village of Nayook for over 20 years, specialising in rare and drought tolerant perennial plants.
The love of garden plants and garden design led us to become a licensed travel agency more than 12 years ago, since when we have been designing and conducting Australian and Overseas Gourmet Garden Holidays. Our travel business is now separate from our nursery and is called Country Farm Perennials Travel Pty Ltd. I take enormous pleasure in leading all of the tours, particularly because it gives me the opportunity to share my passion for travel, the art of garden design and the arts in general, with all those who travel with me.
Both myself and husband David have this passion, and we thoroughly enjoy exploring the highways and byways around the world, discovering the best gardens and most beautiful countryside to share with our fellow travellers. We are also very proud of the association we continue to share with Gippsland Travel, who help organise our group travel arrangements, both here in Australia and overseas.

COUNTRY LIFE MAGAZINE ARTICLE
David and Merryle Johnson who are a creative and endearing couple, have a small picturesque farm in the little village of Nayook with a garden so beautiful it could easily be described in a great English novel.
Their pronounced love of gardening, garden design, the arts and gourmet food has led David and Merryle to the enjoyment of travelling the world to share their passion, their discovery of the world’s best gardens, the nicest gourmet food, and the most beautiful countryside with fellow travellers.
Merryle said she has always loved gardening, and garden plants have been their business for the last 20 years and travel for the last 12. “When I married David, he thought that gardening was mowing a pocket handkerchief lawn once a month, but he caught the bug too. After we bought the farm in 1981, with good soil and plenty of spring water, he just fell in love with the garden.”
She said her gardening interest developed when she was a child. “I grew up on a family farm with three family generations. Our parents were always busy working so it was our grandmother who looked after us as little kids and she loved gardening.” ...............
