Stepping into spring at Tupare

Monday 17 September 2012, 7:19PM

By Taranaki Regional Council



The glories of spring will be celebrated at Tupare on Sunday (23 September) with a free guided walk that will include useful planning tips for the home gardener.

With new growth bursting into life at the New Plymouth heritage property, Tupare manager Mitch Graham will lead visitors to the landscaped garden’s seasonal highlights and explain their background.

A key message for home gardeners will be how a spring garden display can be enhanced by forethought, planning and proper implementation.

Sunday’s walk begins at 2pm at the gatehouse. It is part of a year-round programme of workshops and other events at Tupare, Pukeiti and Hollard Gardens, the three heritage properties owned and administered by the Taranaki Regional Council on behalf of the people of the region.
