A cottage and productive garden.

Cherrytree Cottage is on a sloping block which has been terraced. It has sweeping views across the town and surrounding countryside. There are established front, side and back gardens with roses, camellias and a wide variety of cottage plants. The back garden underwent a major renovation in 2015-16 and as well as vegetable gardens there are rose gardens, many varieties of salvias, weigela and hibiscus.

These plantings are intermingled with fruit trees including 7 cherry trees, figs, quince, oranges, mandarins, peaches, pears, nectarines, apricots, plums, persimmon, lemon, lime, hazelnut and almond trees.  There are approximately 310 roses in the front, back and side gardens.

205 Ardara (Fort on a Hill)

When Mandy and Derek purchased “Ardara”, the 1910 cottage was falling down and there were remnants of a garden. They have rejuvenated the cottage garden, added a hidden Japanese garden, native corridor, deciduous ornamentals, fruit & nut trees.

Come and sit a while and enjoy our wonderful views, from under the spreading walnut tree.

This garden demonstrates how a small area can be landscaped to make maximum use of space. We have
