Taranaki Garden Festival and Taranaki Arts Trail Official launch 15 July 2021

9. Bublitz Garden

27 Durham Ave, New Plymouth, 4312

A plant collector’s paradise, this New Plymouth haven is filled with special plants from around the world, including rhododendrons. Lynn, who has a botany background, believes good gardens have a spiritual dimension, and that’s what you will find here.

A small garden of many levels, the lawn is surrounded by beds filled with interesting plants, a tapestry of foliage, including some rare offerings.

Like Pukeiti, a place dear to Lynn’s heart, this garden is backed by native bush that merges with the Te Henui Walkway. Please take extra care around the bank as some paths are steep. Italian linen sales from Willo.
