Thank you to our 2019 gardeners and visitors we are looking forward to seeing you during our 2020 garden festival!
Rhododendron enthusiast Alan has created a town garden of three parts – a flat courtyard, flourishing veggie patch and a hillside woodland. The courtyard garden around the house features sub-tropical vireya rhododendrons combined with fuchsias, roses and perennials.
The hillside garden at the rear has surprises around every corner of the zigzag path, especially colourful rhododendrons, fiery azaleas, mature trees, viburnums and hydrangeas.
Another showcase is Alan’s healthy vegetable garden. Pukemara is also a haven for hostas, with a large selection of these lush leafy plants on show and for sale along with other plant varieties.
Pukemara featured in New Zealand Gardener in 2019.
