A plant collector’s paradise, this New Plymouth haven is filled with special plants from around the world, including rhododendrons. Lynn, who has a botany background, believes good gardens have a spiritual dimension, and that’s what you will find here.
A small garden of many levels, the lawn is surrounded by beds filled with interesting plants, a tapestry of foliage, including some rare offerings.
