This magnificent large rural garden was created, designed and nurtured by Christine on her own and she also runs a B&B. Garden lovers will be impressed by the layout, the rose features, the specimen trees, hedges, borders and lawns. Take it as you find it, as substantial parts of this stunning garden are in transition with much work involved.

In a rural setting this ambling and meandering garden features large areas of lawn, ponds and perennial borders. The tractor hedge and tractor museum will be a draw card and change of scene for man-cave lovers. The museum is not open on Friday.

It is worth the drive to this established large rural garden with a huge variety of plants; deciduous trees, shrubs, maples and rhododendrons and mass plantings underneath.

A quirky fun garden set to put a smile on your face. Best to park on the road and walk up through the bush to discover a series of garden rooms full of a kaleidoscope of plants and ‘bits and pieces’. Fun is in the air.
