About Cookscroft

Many visitors have asked to see the garden at different times, so this year we have open days from 11.00 until 4.00pm and one evening opening in June which will be accompanied by wine and cheese.

This level garden was started in 1988. Eucalyptus trees provide shelter and there are many complementary southern hemisphere plants as well, notably correas, corokias, grevillea, westringia, as well as interesting woodlanders.
