Rural Oasis

Broadfields, Selwyn Road. Sept. 2008. Ajr
I drove out of town this morning to visit Broadfields, the large - and I mean Large - formal garden that has been developed by David Hobbs. It covers an expansive eleven acres and features almost two kilometres of hedging. Naturally, as a hedge-lover, I was in my element. But along with all the native New Zealand plantings, there are also beautiful rhodoendron and azalea gardens - just bursting into spring bloom. The garden is open to the public on Saturdays and it's DEFINITELY worth a visit.
