Guided garden tours.
Fothergills on Mimiha
Our beautiful, bountiful garden is open to visit, but free for B&B guests to enjoy. In cottage garden style, it covers 1.97 ha and includes colour co-ordinated flower beds featuring roses and perennials, plus trees and shrubs (camellias, rhododendrons etc), and large, productive vegetable gardens, AND fruit trees (citrus, orange, grapefruit, tangelo, lemons) and vines (kiwifruit, grape, berries). As well we grow our own avocados and other sub-tropical fruit like Cherimoya. Grown on organic principles, we use shredded prunings turned to compost to mulch and feed our crops, trees and garden beds. There are birds aplenty (tui, kereru, pawakawaka, quail and many others), and bees from the hives behind our house yield honey for the breakfast table.
