For many, the annual Garden Party is the absolute highlight of the weekend. This year we’re once again celebrating Bloom in the Boom at the grand and opulent Longfield at Fairhall. The party at Longfield last year was a huge hit, we strongly recommend that you be there!
For garden lovers, people lovers and party lovers this is the chance to change out of your gumboots and walking shoes into something glamorous, and to meet some of our international and New Zealand speakers, garden owners, and new and old Garden Marlborough friends as you enjoy
Rapaura Springs wines with lovingly and locally sourced canapés – showcasing more of what our wonderful region produces.
The garden party is also an opportunity to see one of our treasured private gardens transformed from a day time oasis into a night time wonder. Lynne and Rob Hammond’s garden at Longfield takes much of its inspiration from Italy, with statues, fountains, formal garden rooms and classical columns within a circular hedge, and is reminiscent of Hadrian’s Villa at Tivoli. Citrus, olives and lavender feature, and a beautiful orangery opens to a bricked courtyard. We’re very lucky to be able to hold this year’s party at such a perfect location, a garden we promise will amaze and inspire you.
See you there!
