Enjoy a day in the countryside visiting beautiful Fernside gardens. The popular biennial Gardens of Fernside is scheduled for Sunday 25th November (wet or fine) from 10.00 a.m. - 4.00 p.m.
There are nine varied gardens to visit and admire, ranging from native to cottage, floral to shrubs, some relatively new to some very established.
This is a wonderful opportunity to explore some spectacular and interesting gardens in a pretty rural area just 25 minutes north of Christchurch.
Gourmet lunches are again available to pre-order, and will be served at Lyddington, a spectacular 10-acre hillside garden overlooking Mt Thomas and Mt Grey.
You are also welcome to take your own picnic and there will be homemade lemonade and wine on offer along with a string quartet to entertain.
Also along the tour, at another of our beautiful gardens, partake of a Pimms from the Pimms tent while you check out all the exciting bargains from the Silent Auction.
The school will host a humming Market Day with a bumper Plant & Shrub sale, and lots of interesting stalls with a home and garden theme.
Gardens of Fernside is a fantastic day with something for everyone - make sure you get your friends together and book your tickets early!
The adjacent Fernside Hall will be packed with Art from local artists and Fernside School children - definitely worth popping into.
