Taranaki Garden Festival

36. Jungle Nurseries

57 Colson Road, Waiwhakahio, 4372

Renowned New Zealand designer Michael Mansvelt has transformed an empty garden centre into a site so verdant and vibrant, he has named it Jungle Nurseries. Michael bought the 1.5-acre property in early 2020 then, with help from his team, filled it with his favourite plants.

The nursery features several large glasshouses ideal for growing rare and exotic tropical plants – the main glasshouse is a must-see and perfect destination for rainy festival days. Refreshments available for purchase.
