The Homegrown Garden Tour and Fete,is set to be a winner this year with four gardens in the Mid-Canterbury foothills, and a large fete with something for everyone.
The Mayfield Playcentre run event has enchanted visitors since it was first introduced eight years ago.
The fete will be run on November 3 from 10.30am until 4pm in the Mayfield area and will once again feature four stunning gardens and a delightful fete.
Local garden enthusiasts are very excited about the gardens on the tour this year. They will include: include Sara and Blair Gallagher’s Rangiatea, with breath-taking views of Mount Somers; Penny and Mark Greenslade’s Somerset, and beautiful mix of established and developing gardens which will double as this year’s fete site; Mike and Nicky Salversen’s Wakare nestled into the foothills; and Sara and Paul Grigg’s large country garden at Surrey Hills Station.
“The Fete is will be fabulous this year, with over 40 stalls” said fete coordinator Jane Harrison.
The Mayfield Playcentre children have been busy potting up lilies so there will be plenty of Mount Peel Lilies (Cardiocrinum giganteum) for sale on the day.
Mayfield Playcentre president Victoria Morrow said earnings from this year’s event would be put towards the running of the playcentre over the following two years.
Tickets can be bought at RuralCo, Lushingtons, Joosh and Terra Viva for $25. Tickets will also be sold at the gates on the day for $30 or $10 Fete only. For more information visit The Homegrown Garden Tour Facebook page.
