We welcome Palmco Gardens back onto our site.

First planted in the early 1990’s this established subtropical garden features many wonderful specimen palm trees dating back to the original planting.

After the Palmco Team won the Supreme Award at Ellerslie Flower Show in 2007, the following year Palmco Garden was extensively renovated. Many of the features of this winning design are now permanently exhibited in the display garden.

Owner Kristin Lammerting adores and creates gardens (www.englischer-garten-koeln.de).She visits gardens and works as a garden book author in Germany. In 2009 she published “Inspirational Gardens of New Zealand”.

Palmco Garden is a mature, lush, subtropical garden with a great variety of palms, cycads, tropical tree ferns and species with rich under planting of exotics and native species. Visitors are inspired by features like a dry river bed with fire pit and a jetty deck, the gazebo, the small lake, and much more.

At the entrance to the Garden, a substantial tropical house features many interesting and unusual plants.
