The latest listing to the site is Pepper Tree Gardens
442 Kauaeranga Valley Road, Thames, Coromandel, Waikato.
A plant enthusiast’s garden, it is still being developed but has many interesting and rare plants that attract interest. The sweeping valley views from the garden and the sound of the river extend the garden towards the forest park at the head of the valley.
Large lawn areas on several levels are connected by many stone walled paths that allow plants to be viewed at different levels. A large collection of acers is complemented by under planting of hostas, irises and rhododendrons. Dams are surrounded by water plants with bog areas being developed.
Spring and summer are the best times to visit but this is a garden that provides interest all year. Don’t forget to leave room in the boot of your car for those plants you won’t be able to resist from the nursery.
