Mincher, Woodbridge, 338 Riverhead-Coatesville H’way/36 Glenmore R, Auckland


All Ages

Enjoy a day's outing on either the 21st or 22nd November between 10am and 4 pm and visit "Woodbridge" and "Mincher" gardens, two of Coatesville's five star NZ Garden Trust properties in their late spring splendour.

Tony and Christine Peek welcome you to "Woodbridge" situated at 36 Glenmore Road. Forged from bare farmland the property has developed into a beautifully designed garden featuring enclosed and open spaces, lawn, water features and woodland areas all planted imaginatively with many interesting varieties of plants and trees. Special vistas include a lavender walk and wildflower meadow.

Bruce and Angela Spooner welcome you to "Mincher," situated at 338 Coatesville Road. Old orchards, ponds inhabited by water fowl and ducks along with formal and informal planting surround a Georgian styled house in this delightful large rural garden. Explore the expansive native walkways, walled kitchen garden and Victorian inspired glasshouse.

Car parking is on site and you will be directed where to park. Both gardens are wheelchair friendly with public toilets available.

Visitors are welcome to take their own picnic lunch to enjoy at either venue where some outdoor seating is available.
Refreshments will also be available for purchase on the day.

A variety of products will be on sale at both venues and a rafflle will be included at Woodbridge. This will be drawn after the event has closed on the Sunday and the winner will be contacted by phone.
On the day there will be facilities to pay by Eftpos or cash. We regret no credit cards will be accepted.

All proceeds go to Hospice North Shore and St Peter's Anglican Church, Takapuna
