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

3. Winlea Acre

2 Joll St
An immaculate award-winning open-style garden that boasts a huge lawn with plantings on either side. The amazing variety of trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants, fruits and vegetables, skilfully planted in this garden provide a wonderful example of what can be achieved in short spaces of time with vision and expertise. The garden itself is entirely flat, and curved beds planted with heuchera and hostas border the immaculate and vast lawn. Other attractions to the garden include the addition of a house conservatory filled with orchids and sub-tropical plants, and a pergola draped with climbers where you can sit and take in the entire garden bursting with life. Complimentary tea/coffee available. Plants for sale.
