A renowned garden which has international acclaim, Trott’s Garden, has been home to Alan and Catherine Trott and their family for thirty-seven years. In September 2017 the garden was sold to the newly formed Trott’s Garden Charitable Trust to ensure this beautiful garden remains accessible to people from all over the world who admire this local New Zealand paradise.

Trott's Garden is now closed to Garden visitors for the Winter.

We will reopen in Sept 2020.
