If you are purchasing rhododendrons from us there is no charge to visit our garden

If you are visiting the garden during peak flowering the charge is $10pp.  Children up to 18 are free.

At RhodoDirect you will find all the rhododendrons you have can see on the website plus many more varieties that we have not listed due to the small number that we are carrying in stock. We highly recommend you visit the nursery if you are able to, as choosing in person is the ultimate experience.  During your visit, you will have the opportunity to wander through the nursery and ask for our advice on any of the rhododendrons.

Directions from Christchurch
Take the main road to Amberley, turn left at Waipara towards Hanmer Springs.  Drive through Culverden, about 1km out of Culverden is a turn to the right signposted 'Rotherham', 'Waiau', 'Kaikoura'. Turn right and as you go around the corner put on your trip meter, we are 17km down this road.   The sign at the gate says "Rhodo Direct".  
Our garden is always open to customers who visit, however, we put a huge effort into preparing it for spring, outside of spring you will need to take us as you find us, during the other seasons we are in maintenance mode in the garden.

For the weekend of 1-3 November 2019 we are taking part in the Hurunui Garden Festival.
It will be $10pp charge to visit our garden on this weekend for everyone.  
We put the most effort into our garden for this weekend, there will be 20 or more gardens open over the same weekend.  For information about the Festival please go to the Hurunui Garden Festival home page
