Three Beautiful Large Spring Gardens
Wednesday 1 November 2017 8am – 6pm
Joy & Bernie O’Keefe
Surrounding the house near the nursery, is an extensive tranquil garden. Maples, flowering cherries, cornus and other trees are interplanted with approximately 1000 rhododendrons. A large pond surrounded by irises and hostas is a feature. Roses, peonies, and borders of lavender, heuchera, stachys, alchemilla mollis all add to the overall effect.
Ros & Philip Burdon
In this large estate garden the sculptures by Andrew Drummond in this colourful woodland area are a “must see”.
Orari Estate is one of four stations in South Canterbury which has never changed hands except by inheritance. Throughout the years each generation has added their own mark with their different plantings. Rosie’s passion are magnolias and rhododendrons. The woodland garden features a large pond with many trees over 100 years old.
