Taranaki Garden Festival

26. Hirst Cottage

94 Pendarves Street, New Plymouth, 4310

This inner-city minimalist garden adopts linear principles and is themed ‘green and white with a touch of red’. It features white petunias, white lilies and black velvet pelargoniums, with the ambience of courtyards, gazebo and buxus hedging.

This 1865 propery holds a Heritage A listing and stands alongside the historical cluster known as Hen and Chickens. The protected oaks, ginkgo and pohutukawa add to the unique story. Previously featured in NZ House & Garden, Your Home & Garden, NZ House & Garden House Tours and The Gardener's Journal.
