I really appreciated seeing the wonderful Hattenburn. Their information cards were super helpful, interesting and witty!

Loved it all. A nice varied selection. Congratulations on a succesful event. Really enjoyed Old Table lands today. Tiara Country gardens and Kokotau Road. Just loved Casita Flora yesterday and the Dr's Garden.

Loved them all, fantastic weekend, we'll be back.

We loved the variety too, lots for everyone. Amazing small Garden for Life very impressive (especially for an 80+ year old); grand gardens Old Tablelands and Richmond; simply beautiful Doctors House and Te Puhi; magnificent maples and views at Tikara; elegant simplicity at Kotare; garden humour and art at Hattenburn and the delight of birds singing through the native tree garden. Who could choose just one! Some of the mapping could have been clearer though, FYI.

Didn't get to them all with kids in tow but I loved the Drs house. Table lands was divine, loved Holbrook family food forest as so inspirational for our new block. Had some scrumptious sausages at Kokotau where the kids adored the playhouse. We won some tickets from Balter - so very grateful, it's been a fabulous weekend!

Fabulous tour - lots of variety!!Casita Flora, Kokotau Road, the Doctor’s Garden and Awariki were my favourites.Though Hattenburn and Old Tablelands were up there as well.A great weekend away!!!!😀😎😊

Adored Featherston's Doctor's House. Just superb.

And thank you to your team - what an amazing two days we've had. Felt privileged to see these beautiful properties. So well organized and friendly. My favourite garden was Old Tablelands. It was standout.

We loved Tablelands. But all had a special little something.

So glad it was another success

The Doctors' House.

1) doctor’s house. 2)kokotau rd 3) tablelands. Te puhi nudges in there somewhere too.

We loved Te Puhi 💕

Thanks Alix Cooper

Well done team! We thought the garden selection was especially fabulous this year. 🌸🌞😄

I only go to do hlaf of them (closest to Masterton) but my fav was Marvin Guerrero's house in Wyndham St Carterton. Just marveled at all that was in there. Was just fab!
