All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • General Admission: $5.00

Join down-to-earth rhododendron enthusiast Alan Morris for a talk on gardening on a steep site. Alan is retired and for the past six years has enjoyed being part of the Powerco Taranaki Garden Spectacular (formerly the rhododendron festival). His hillside garden was re-developed and re-planted in 2001 when he first bought the property.

He will speak practically about the importance of the garden design, layout of paths and the planting of trees and shrubs on a tricky hillside site. Learn how he has used sun and shade to his advantage. Alan’s working life was with textiles and his flair with colour and texture is very evident in this garden.
