Magnolia Grove was established in 2005 when we moved into the house on a blank 8000sq metre property and started planting hedges and magnolia seedlings. In 2008 we obtained a further 32000 sq metres the garden doubled, and the nursery trebled. The area in the lower right of the picture is the seedling nursery where we raise rootstocks for sale. The rest of the right hand part of the property is the tree nursery where we raise magnolias and a few other trees for sale.
The bottom left portion of the garden is the original grove of magnolia seedlings planted in 2005 where ‘Brixton Belle’, ‘Deryk’, ‘Brixton Salmon’ and ‘Mighty Mouse’ were raised.
We are open weekends from early August to Mid November, as well as for the Powerco Taranaki Garden Spectacular. Other times by appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning 0274397207.
We look forward to your visit.
