Graeme Henderson and the rose arbour he built for the heritage gardeners at the Halfway House. Graeme is the son of a farming family from Otago. The Browns, who built the Halfway House, also hailed from Otago.
Heritage fruit and heritage seed from Central Hawke's Bay were collected for Glenside's heritage garden in March. These were a crown of rhubarb from Waipawa, originally grown by Sam Coles at Ongaonga; parsnip seed, from c1880 parsnips, which are growing wild on an Ongaonga roadside; and 1890 raspberries 'semper fidelis' from Gwavas Garden Homestead, which were originally planted by A.S.G. Carlyon of Gwavas. Pictured - Gwavas homestead in early autumn when the Glenside gardener's visited.
