Trott’s Garden

South Canterbury
7 days per week 10am-4pm. Bookings for groups essential.

Internationally acclaimed Trott’s Garden was the home to Alan and Catherine Trott and their family for 37 years.

In September 2017 the garden was sold to the newly formed Trott’s Garden Charitable Trust to ensure this beautiful garden remains accessible to people from all over the world. Garden areas are integrated yet contain elements of surprise as the visitor explores this piece of paradise. Careful emphasis on placement of trees and shrubs means that the garden is equally stunning in form and colour, all year round. The love and devotion that has gone into Trott’s Garden makes this one of the highlights of Ashburton.


$5 per adult
