An annual fundraiser for the Pukaha Mount Bruce National Wildlife Centre, this two-day, self-drive garden tour will feature beautiful and unique gardens from the south and central Wairarapa. This year, Masterton based financial advice firm RIVAL Wealth is proudly supporting the 2018 garden tour as a sponsor.
Now into its eighth year, the Pukaha Wairarapa Garden Tour is a well-established event that offers a variety of gardens to suit visitors of all ages.
The 2018 tour will include a few old favourites and some newbies that haven't been open to the public before.
There'll be something for everyone, so you can pick your gardens and choose your route according to whatever tickles your gardening fancy.
There will be grand country estates, delightful cottage gardens, a flower farm as well as sustainable edible gardens.
Dotted along the tour, and available at some of the larger gardens will be locally sourced and home-made refreshments. Pre-ordered picnics, provided by Greytown's Prodigal Daughter are available by emailing: email@example.com. There will be homemade lemonade and slices, Italian plunger coffee and pesto pasta salad punnets to take away.
