Thank you to everyone who visited our gardens and attended our events for the 2021 Taranaki Garden Festival.

24. Tropical Treasures

816 Carrington Rd
Tropical Treasures is a private subtropical garden set within a subtropical outdoor and tropical indoor plant nursery. The subtropicals are taking over this labour of love, which is only three years old. Visitors will be amazed at what can be grown and how well they flourish in this garden at the foot of the mountain. With many display gardens open to the public visiting the nursery, we will also be opening our private garden during the festival only. EVENT: Epic Epiphytes

7. Frog Lodge

Frog Lodge will not be opening this year.
David and Noeline Sampson have made the right decision for their family not to open for the festival. David suffered major injuries after a fall last month, which caused serious damage to both legs. He is still on the long road to recovery. I’m sure you will all agree with us, this is the right move but a very sad one.

We wish him a full recovery. Read More >
