Jennifer & Ken Horner

A country garden developed since 1978, folding quietly around its hilltop site with mountain and inland Taranaki views.

Adjacent to the outer ramparts of 400-year-old Puketarata Pa and kainga Keteonatea, both of major significance to our area. A love of natives skillfully blended with exotic varieties giving seasonal variety is a particular strength.

Generous herbaceous plantings, lawn tennis court, perennial border, orchard, berry house, vegetable garden and parterre, are enhanced by the wider landscape.

Diversity of different areas, planting and design give this garden its individual and unique character.

The gully below has a QEII Covenant, with natives, exotics and walking tracks.

Access for small buses.  Large coach tours, transport from the gate by arrangement.

Complimentary tea, coffee, water. Areas available for family picnics.

Open 9am - 5.30pm, admission 2 tickets or $10pp
