Postcard of Carpet Bedding, Wannock gardens

This postcard shows intricate carpet bedding in Wannock Gardens. Carpet bedding is the planting of blooming plants close together into a clear design. The practice began in the Victoria era and was popular in the early 20th century. These public displays attracted people into town parks and were used to cultivate a sense of civic pride, showcasing written messages and emblems, as well as new ideas.
