We would like to welcome a new garden to the site. Moon Gate Villa and gardens were commissioned by a successful 'Mills and Boon' romance novelist, and developed in 1990 on the site of a former orange orchard.
The Far North climate is favourable to plants that only grow in climates without snow or frost and Kerikeri's unique orchard hedges further encourages micro climates to form. Brazilian fern trees, helaconias, palm trees and hibiscus all thrive here, to the delight of our visitors. Day lillies, varigated agapathus, and pineapple lillies are amongst varieties sharing gradens beds with native coprosmas, flax, cordylines and hebe throughout the themed destinations.
The garden is open all year by appointment only. We are happy to receive small groups but please ring beforehand!
