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.

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".  We are the next property after the golf club - if you get to the Waiau Bridge you have gone too far.

Either phone us on 0800 315 6555 or email

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. 

We can arrange visits to other local gardens too, please ask if we can help you and if you wish to stay for longer then check out the incredible deal we have for dinner/bed and breakfast at Mt Lyford
