Puketarata Garden is a large country garden sensitively contoured across a hillside in South Taranaki making the most of the Mt Taranaki & inland views including the adjacent 400 year old Puketarata Pa.
Skilled blending of a diverse range of native & exoctic plants, is a particular focus through the various garden rooms creating a garden which sits well in the landscape.
Generous herbaceous plantings provide flowers, colour, and scent.Carefully managed diversity of planting give this garden its indivual character. There is a small orchard, many bulbs, heritage roses, magnolias, rhododendrons.... Gardens in Taranaki are supported by wonderful friable soil & regular rain - almost semi tropical growing conditions.
The gully below has been fenced off from stock & gradually replanted & a network of tracks are being developed.
The garden is open during the Powerco Taranaki Garden Spectacular in the first week of November and other times by appointment
