Wilstead Manor Gardens

Wilstead Manor Gardens

Enjoy a large country property of expansive colourful vegetable gardens edged with large swathes of bold sunflowers, twisted zinnias and dahlias that create a garden tapestry. Stroll past outcroppings of the Canadian Shield integrated with created rock walls. Springtime shows of large masses of daffodils, while large perennial beds with tall grasses, shrubs, large plantings of Plume poppy, helenium, Echinacea, and Russian sage complete the painterly, pastoral landscape. Venture along the wildflower path to enjoy vistas of planted fields on the 55-acre property which surrounds a renovated 1859 Georgian limestone home. Attached to the home is a pergola with a water feature to attract birds and create a sense of tranquillity. Plantings also encourage native butterflies, and birds in all seasons.
