These gardens we have are complex and push the limits of traditional gardens as some species are the first time they have ever been grown in central Otago. The climate also challenges our thinking as we have extremes in temperatures only found in alpine conditions.
What Simon brings to the table is a vast knowledge of plants, the care of these plants and minimising potential losses. This local knowledge can not be underestimated and someone as knowledgeable as Simon is a rare find down here! I fully recommend Simon and I’m personally very comfortable with the relationship that has developed through the garden at The Hills."
