The Garden

We moved here in 2008 after owning Wentworth Gardens on Ormiston Rd for many years. We did some major garden renovations when we moved here, although the bones were here with a lot of structure already in place. We moved many of our favourites to the new garden, with almost 100% success rate. View Map

The Gardener

Doreen has gardening in the blood and had a mother who gardened well into her 90's. If you phone at night before dark you will get the answer phone as she is more often than not in the garden. Doreen loves having visitors to share in the joy of the garden, but has family out of Auckland so spends time with them. So do book ahead of time.


Garden Details

Go to the next intersection which goes straight ahead to Potts Rd where you will find Ayrlies, but turn right there into Clifton Rd and drive 2 km's to Huntingwood which is on the left.
