Jacque Jamieson's backyard is something to see. In the green universe behind her house, you'll find 5000 square meters of beautifully-landscaped garden, complete with New Zealand natives of many varieties. The garden includes ferns, perennials, roses, woodlands plants, trees, shrubs, bulbs, and even succulents, all made possible by the sub-tropical climate of the area, not to mention Jacque's hard work (20-30 hours a week). Among the green, you'll find some blue, too; specifically, local blue stone that's used to construct pillars, retain banks, pave patios and edge gardens. There's also a pond and a ponga house for plants needing more shade. Jacque's delightful tour costs only NZD10, and makes for a relaxing and educational day out. Bring a picnic!
