Although we currently have a great selection of gardens already confirmed for this year’s event, we’re always interested in, and often in need of new gardens. If you have an amazing garden you’d like to share with us, or would simply like more information regarding the event and what’s involved, please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to the generosity of local garden owners, we have confirmed a wonderful selection of 18 gardens for this year’s Palmers Planet Mangawhai Garden Ramble. Some gardens are just on the outskirts of Mangawhai, with most featured in/around the Village and Heads areas.
There are 7 never before exhibited gardens in this year’s line up, a few which haven’t been exhibited for more than 2 years, and a couple of returning favourites from last year. As always, the gardens are of the highest quality and great care has been taken to ensure the selection offers something for everyone – ranging from expansive to compact, some quite new – others well established, some gardens with stunning views and outlooks, and others featuring particular areas of interest such as unique plants and floral displays, walking trails, water features and garden art.
We have three gardens confirmed for night viewing this year, enhanced children’s activities, and also a range of plants, cuttings and garden art will be available for purchase at some of the gardens. Most of the gardens are easy to moderate access and can be enjoyed in 20-30 minutes. Some are more expansive, with rambling times only limited by your own schedule.
As always, the Kindy and Plunket volunteer operated refreshment stalls won’t disappoint – offering a range of mouth-watering sweet and savoury home-baked goods and a revitalising cup of tea, or a delicious gourmet coffee from The New Zealand Coffee Company. So remember to bring some cash and a healthy appetite – there’s sure to be something for everyone!
Whether you’re a seasoned Ramble veteran, a first time Rambler keen to see what it’s all about, or perhaps a local family looking for a fun, interactive and affordable weekend out and about in the Mangawhai area, we encourage you to join us for the 2017 Palmers Planet Mangawhai Garden Ramble.
All funds are shared jointly by our local Kindergarten and Plunket groups, making this important annual event a win-win all around!
Get in quick for your Early Bird tickets from 14th October onwards, and let’s get ready to RAMBLE!
