A new garden to list is Pandora Gardens

We moved here in 1997 and decided that this was a great space to plan and design a garden. It was from here we decided that bromeliads fitted in and complemented the  other plants. First was a Manuka which gave us cover as well as a large magnolia in the middle of the garden. After ten years we planted Queen Palms down the main walkways, more Magnolia varieties, and several Kowhai. There are several small paths around the garden with hidden treasures.  A large pergola is now covered with climbing roses and fairy roses growing close by. An aviary and fish pond complete the garden.  Other shrubs have found their way into the garden like many Vireya Rhododendron, Rhododendron, Azalea, Bush Roses, Clivia, Orchids, Staghorn ferns, Ponga and many more.
