“Inspirational”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

I find looking through this garden inspirational, from the native New Zealand plants area, to the more formal areas. The vistas from various spots are beautiful and just draw your eye to the surrounding hills. Thank you for allowing us to view your beautiful garden,

“An amazing garden”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We were lucky to come across this garden when driving from Christchurch to Hanmer Springs. It is an oasis of luxurious plantings, ambitiously designed to create enchanting spaces that shelter from the renowned high winds of the area, yet encompass and complement the magnificent vistas of the countryside. We would love to return to enjoy in different seasons. Anyone with a love of gardens will appreciate the structure, the attention to detail and the tranquillity of this place. The web site describes it well. Calling ahead is strongly recommended. Penny graciously welcomed our group of three, gave us a brief history of the garden and of her guiding principles in creating it, and left us to wander at leisure.
