Description

Garden visits for private people as well as bus loads.

The garden is 6 acres - with wide lawnpaths linking each area together with rhododendrons, camellias, thousands of annuals, perennials roses and a huge are dedicated to NZ natives surrounding Ted's pond.

We have a pontque court which we made for our daughter's wedding and play croquet on the lawn.

You are welcome to bring own food & drink in the form of a picnic.

Everything for a stunning rural wedding. We have over 5 thousand daffodils lining the entrance drive with lots of English trees and many flowering cherries.
