November field-day event
Date – Sunday 9 th November
Time – 10am start
Where – Morning – property of Fred & Judy
Linton, Palmerston North [vehicle parking on roadside verge]
Bring – Your lunch, a coat and suitable footwear.
A long-established nursery
This extensively planted 7 acre tree property has been over 50 years in the making by the same owners, who were closely involved with the Manawatu tree-nursery industry prior to retirement. A wide selection of specimen trees [some rare], extensive shelter planting, fruit trees, veggie gardens, green houses etc and abundant birdlife make this property rather special.
City suburban living is the next challenge facing Fred and Judy, so this is an opportunity to inspect their rural-lifestyle creation before it is sold.
Afternoon – One man, one digger
One man, one digger….. This 10 acre property offers inspiration to budding pond builders looking for design ideas and construction techniques. Along with the ponds, there is a mature olive grove, numercitrus and other fruit trees. Amenity plantings also grace this block. Mike’s enthusiasm could best be described as infectious!
