Nelmac Garden Marlborough, a truly grassroots event dreamt up and organised by gardeners for gardeners, is now New Zealand’s premier garden festival. A celebration of Marlborough’s stunning landscape, it showcases the very best the region has to offer with garden tours, garden themed workshops and social events. The full-day and half-day garden tours encompass everything from compact designer gardens in the heart of Blenheim to breath-taking country estates. Take the opportunity to brush up on your skills and horticultural knowledge by learning from New Zealand and international experts, led this year by English garden sculptor Rupert Till. This year’s event runs from 3-6 November.
