The Garden

In 1995 Greg and I bought our 200 Acre farm, Haumoana was the original name of the property which we have adopted. Aptly named, it means 'Sea breeze', as we usually have a westerly breeze coming off near by Murawai Beach.
Panoramic views of the Kaipara Harbour and Rolling Countryside determined our house and garden site in 1997.
Greg has deer to hand feed and my extensive garden has lots of focal points to look at.
Seasonal plantings, palms, bromeliads, natives, unusual and rare bulbs, frangipanis, tropical's and a few roses.
A 'Her Shed' complete with loo, a 'Beach Garden', a 'Roly Poly Hill, a 'Fairy Garden' and 'Garden Art'.

The Gardener

My love of gardening is starting to show through. Many years of cuttings and seed growing and plants handed on by fellow gardeners, are starting to fill our large country garden. There is always a project in progress, the biggest is to join the garden with the pond area which already has extensive native planting including many Kauri's. In my spare time I make garden crafts, these along with plants grown from cuttings and seed from the garden, are for sale.

Hippeastrum ‘Dancing Queen’ The bulb is tender and should not be exposed to frost or slugs and snails as they will demolish the whole plant and flower. The very large, decorative flowers can also be grown outside in temperate areas.
Morning/afternoon tea or luncheon will be served by arrangement on your visit. We have seating inside or out for up to 120 people. Certified 'A' Grade Kitchen.
