Thank you to everyone who visited our gardens and attended our events for the 2021 Taranaki Garden Festival.

5. Magnolia Grove

6 Mahoetahi Rd
Behind the casual entrance is a hidden mature garden that will wow you. A Mediterranean theme of succulents and cacti make a bold statement. Paths flow out naturally to unfold a myriad of magnolia species, the bamboo forest, and a bee garden; just a few of the combinations creating this idyllic sanctuary maturing to a forest setting as part of the original plan. A must see for rare and unusual plants and trees with a wide range of plants available.
