There are approximately 36+ sites to visit around Palmerston North, Feilding, Halcombe, Colyton, Bunnythorpe and Pohangina Valley with a number of new gardens never open to public viewing before. Some gardens are wedding venues and are beautifully cared for. Gardens range from very large to medium and small, some being newly established and some are mature. Enjoy gardens with sculptures, artwork, crafts and some gardens are selling plants. Stunning new artists and some returning artists can be visited in their studios and there is an opportunity to purchase their artworks. Several quality artists have their work on display and for sale at the Feilding Art Centre. Visit an experienced and talented weaver who exhibits and sells beautiful rugs, pillows, and tea towels. Also, enjoy a stroll around her garden.
For the first time, we have a group of gardens and artists in the beautiful Pohangina Valley. Privately owned Pohangina Wetlands is a destination of note. We encourage you to visit this region as these people have put on food, drink, Devonshire tea and ploughman lunches for sale. Look for large bright flags that are colour matched on the maps to fine each event site. Enter the photography competition with the three prizes on offer. A beautiful raffle for a garden sculpture is for sale at the Feilding Art Centre.
