Rhododendron enthusiast Alan has created a town garden of three parts – a flat courtyard, flourishing veggie patch and a hillside woodland.

The courtyard garden around the house features sub-tropical vireya rhododendrons combined with fuchsias, roses and perennials. The hillside garden at the rear has surprises around every corner of the zigzag path, especially colourful rhododendrons, fiery azaleas, mature trees, viburnums and hydrangeas. To the rear, unearth Alan’s healthy vegetable garden.

Pukemara is also a haven for hostas. You’ll find a large selection of these lush leafy plants on show and for sale along with other plant varieties.
