Thank you to our 2019 gardeners and visitors we are looking forward to seeing you during our 2020 garden festival!

29. Mary’s Place

190 Glover Rd, Hawera, 4610

Take one step into Mary’s Place and you’ll be dazzled by colour, form and fascinating plants. This highly detailed and immaculate town garden reflects the lifelong gardening experience of Mary, who has been part of the festival since its inception in 1987.

Archways are draped with climbing roses and clematis, layered plantings provide depth and small water features add movement and sound. The clever use of found objects and container plants thick with flowers and foliage add to this inspiring, flowing garden of many hues.
