Real gardener 'Within limits'



An akeake hedge screens the vegetable garden and creates a sheltered spot for a morning snack. Waxeyes love the fresh fruit.

The nature walk connecting front and back gardens is alive with birdsong.

Ferns and Chatham Island forget-me-nots feature on the shady side of the house. White tree lucerne flowers are a magnet for bellbirds and kereru.
