New owners are enjoying Merleswood’s magnificent variety of trees, shrubs and lush planting. Rhododendrons, camellias, maples, oaks and elm trees give structure and form to gardens and pathways filled with hostas, azaleas, spring bulbs and cottage plants. Rugosa hedges, lavender, mature wisteria and a hidden garden with stream and pond (a haven for blackbirds, thrushes, fantails and tui) are some of the highlights of this 113-year-old garden.
Open 9am - 4pm, admission 1 ticket or $5pp
