The Hororata Parish invites you to enjoy two country gardens on Saturday 26th November, from 11 a.m. till 3 p.m.

The ‘Quirky Garden’ near Windwhistle is a treat to behold and not often open for visitors. Garden art and sculpture are around every corner and will bring a smile to your face. It is set on half an acre, with many perennials and more than 200 roses – possums permitting! See what a garden can do when over 50% of the original large trees have blown down in windstorms during the last 5 or 6 years.

The Quirky Garden is located at 1365 Leaches Road. There will be some plants for sale and metal sculptures which can be ordered. Your $10 cash admission fee also provides you with a cuppa and a scone.

Terrace Station has already had four happy Open Garden days and this time the admission fee of $10 with all proceeds going to the Parish. The rather special Paeony veitchii is seldom seen by visitors as it doesn’t start flowering until November. We hope the Cardiocrinums (2 metre high lilies) may have started flowering beneath the magnificent heritage trees.

Follow the signs from the Hororata roundabout to Terrace Station.

Cash only at both gardens, please leave your dogs at home.
