Discover the gardens at Longbush Cottage and embark on an enchanting journey through nature's beauty. As you step into this modern flower-filled cottage garden, you will be immersed in vibrant colours and captivating planting themes. Luke, the creative genius behind this horticultural masterpiece, has skillfully crafted a series of "garden rooms" radiating from the charming 1890s cottage, encompassing over a hectare of land. Each garden room offers a unique and immersive experience, with carefully curated plantings that create a harmonious blend of textures and scents that change throughout the year. Take your time to explore each space at your own pace during the self-guided or guided tour, which typically lasts about an hour.
