2014 April field-day event
Date – Sunday 6th April 2014
Time – 10.30am start
Where – Awahou Gardens and Nursery, No.1 Line Pohangina [off Pohangina Valley East Rd.]
Bring – Your lunch, a coat and suitable footwear.
John & Cynthia are passionate gardeners, keen on trees and plants, propagation and landscape design.
This is clearly reflected in their impressive property, which in more recent times has provided a platform for their long-planned plant nursery. They specialise in perennials, shrubs, trees and aquatic plants.
Here we get a conducted tour of the property and a chance to peruse the extensive nursery stock.
Plant sales will be available on the day.
We lunch in the garden.
Please note – a $5.00 p/p surcharge [payable to the host] applies to this property visit.
Konewa Cottage and Walnut Grove [1pm-ish]
Pohangina Valley East Road, Pohangina.
Another interesting property in an idyllic location, with an established walnut grove [300 trees] plus a selection of around 40 fruit, olive and hazelnut trees. We also get to inspect Sue & Frazer’s cottage/retreat that started life as a very modest one room hut but is now booked out most weekends.
