Showstopping Gisborne garden

Star Jasmine is the springtime star in Libby and David Clark's rural garden near Gisborne; here it festoons the pergola in front of the pool and has been clipped into lozenge shapes along the fence; visitors marvel at the abundance of blossoms hanging underneath the archway but, says Libby, it did take time (about seven years) and patience to train; the trees beyond the pool are white largerstroemias (crepe myrtle) and an ever green oak.
