My garden in Khandallah, Wellington is named Corryvrach after the place in Deeside where the Begg family farmed. It is down a long drive with a small garden in front of the house and a larger one at the back. Down the side of the back garden is a fernery which is very much a work in progress.
I help develop and maintain the heritage garden at the Halfway House in Glenside. It surrounds the Halfway House which was built in the 1880s and was a hostelry halfway between Porirua and Wellington.
Visiting other gardens, both grand and not-so-grand, as well as being enjoyable provides me with lots of ideas to try in my garden.
