Longbush Cottage Tulip Festival

Longbush Cottage Tulip Festival

Longbush Cottage Tulip Festival celebrates the majestic tulip and the return of spring on 1 & 2 October 2022.

Thousands of Tulips have been planted throughout the garden (this year alone saw 6,500 bulbs from 50 varieties planted) that thrive in the Wairarapa conditions with many varieties naturalised to return year after year. Learn more about the garden here. 

Stroll through different garden rooms of colour-themed displays and an extensive collection of pots, as well as four new garden rooms developed in 2022 each with a different colour theme.

Luke, the garden creator, will be in the garden all weekend to answer your questions about the Tulips or the garden and a wide variety of potted tulips will be available to buy along with a selection of cottage garden plants.

If you don't get the opportunity to visit the festival Longbush Cottage is open for garden visits from 1 September until the end of April 2023. As the gardens change throughout the summer season there is always an array of colours and something new to see for a return visit!
