The grounds, of approximately 4.5 acres, which were once orchards and hopfields, have been transformed into a series of gardens, featuring many hundreds of roses.
Many of the roses are of the old-fashioned variety, as well as gardens of David Austin roses and a collection of roses by the Australian rose breeder Alister Clark.
The gardens also feature masses of perennials including many species of iris, daylillies, pinks, phlox and ground covers.
Thousands of daffodils bloom in the spring alongside the lilacs, viburnums, crab apples, philadelphus and other spring flowering shrubs.
The garden also features a number of varieties of exotic trees such as birches, maples, liquid ambers, wisteria trees, oaks, gleditsias, a tulip tree and Norway cut maples. Many of these are noted for their beautiful autumn foliage, seen at their best in April and May.
Water iris, roses and native trees surround a large pond.

Huon Valley Mid-winter Festival


Willie Smith's Apple Shed is the hottest hut in the Huon Valley: craft ciders, artisan cheeses, and plenty of space to sit, chat, roll in the hay, etc. They've partnered up with other like-minded locals to throw a mini midwinter festival to celebrate the region's apple-pickin' history.
At its core is a focus on wassailing: the ages-old tradition of scaring nasties out of cider apple trees, from orchard to orchard, in order to bring on a stellar autumn yield. Now, things may seem a little strange at first: kings, queens, processions, giving gifts to the trees, shouting, banging, fire, candlelight, and so forth, but what else would you expect? And if none of that bobs your Geeveston fanny, that's okay too - there'll be cider, entertainment and feast-worthy food in abundance.
