Crafting the Laburnum at Larnach Castle

Crafting the Laburnum at Larnach Castle


Perfection doesn’t come without effort.

The view through Laburnum Pergola at Larnach Castle is a photographer’s dream, it showcases vistas of the city at one end of the arch and the castle with the fountain in foreground at the opposite end.

To repeat last spring’s spectacular show of golden flowers this year, Fiona Eadie our head gardener spends the good part of a week on scaffold trimming and tying in the new growth. 

The odd kereru flies in to keep her company.

This botanic arch is situated in the perfect location for the many brides that choose to be married at Larnach Castle.
