ALL 2023 GARDENS
The 2023 Garden Tour was in North Wairarapa.
This garden has it all, space, curved mature gardens, fruit and olive trees and a wonderful home veggie garden. There is a small regenerating bush block away from the garden and 100’s of native plants potted up in the small nursery. We love this garden for its natural beauty.
