Gardens are at their glorious best in spring.  Everything is lush, fresh, and full of promise, and even the sky seems washed clean of last winter’s frown. As our personal patch of paradise drags itself out of winter hibernation it is well worth getting some stimulation and motivation from others. The essence of a spring garden is a profusion of blossom, flowers, and greenery so fresh you can smell it. Our spring garden tours feature a selection of New Zealand’s best spring gardens to visit, where the owners take enormous pride in their gardens and are keen to share their knowledge.
