The Gardener

John and Betty Turnbull bought 4 acres of rural land in 2001. The house and garden where built soon after. The garden has shown exceptional growth due to shelter, rich alluvial soil and lots of love and tender care.Their passion and increasing knowledge in trees has lead to a huge variety in the plantings. What started as a small retirement project has become a very special place which they love to share with guests and garden visitors.
