Garden’s and Birds
Garden View Cottages is developing a foraging garden track, intended for guests to forage fresh fruit, berries and vegetables. Harvest is seasonal and intended to be a healthy supply of fresh food when available. We have planted the following plants and most are already producing: Apples, Apricots, Plums, Cherries, Peaches, Pears, Lemon, Lime and Orange trees. Also, Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries, Cranberries, Currents, Cape Gooseberries, Kiwifruit and many other species. We also have a great supply of vegetables and herbs depending on the season.
It’s a sharing garden so depends on people taking only what they need.
We are surrounded by Native Trees and these attract many Native Bird species including the Bellbird, Tui, Fantail, Kereru (New Zealand Pigeon), Karearea (New Zealand Falcon), Kotare (New Zealand Kingfisher), Finches and the cheeky Wekas.
