We open in October each year for Iris flowering and in December for Dayliliy flowering. For 2023 we will open daily from the 14th October to the 30th October (10 am to 4 pm) and the first weekend in November. We may open other days by appointment. We will open for daylilies on the weekends of the Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd and Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th of December 2023 and throughout the summer by appointment.
We sincerely hope visitors are continue to be COVID safe even though the restrictions have been lifted. My Mum is 91 this October and I must protect her. Please do not come if you are unwell with the flu or Covid symptoms.
NOTE: If you are particularly interested in the dwarfs they will be in full bloom earlier than our open days - please call to arrange a visit earlier in October.
I would love to show you around other times however I still work full time off-farm so I can only show you around if you have made an appointment. There is a nominal one-off entry fee of $10 per family deducted of your first order - returning customers and their guests are exempt by showing their loyalty card.
We have approximately 200 daylilies which flower over summer starting just as the irises finish flowering in early November.
We have morning and afternoon teas available by donation with money raised for our favourite charities each year - Enjoy!!
If you are visiting and have food allergies and hoping to have teas please let us know so we can cater for your needs.
Come, relax and enjoy a cuppa and these beautiful flowers.
