Longbush Cottage presents:
Tulip Festival 2023
Experience the enchantment of the Longbush Cottage Tulip Festival, a celebration that transports you to a world of awe-inspiring beauty and welcomes the arrival of spring with open arms.
Located amidst the picturesque landscapes of Wairarapa, just a short 15-minute drive from the charming towns of Martinborough and Carterton, Longbush Cottage reveals a modern cottage garden that will leave you in awe.
Immerse yourself in Luke’s meticulous planting of thousands of tulips, with an impressive addition of 7,000 new blooms this year alone. These vibrant displays seamlessly merge with the garden’s borders, creating an organic and awe-inspiring effect that sets it apart from traditional bedding displays.
Explore every corner of the garden adorned with tulips, showcasing an array of varieties and colour themes that perfectly harmonize with the garden room designs.
Beyond the joy of admiring these stunning tulips, festivalgoers have the opportunity to bring a piece of the festival home with them. Potted tulips are available for purchase, allowing you to recreate the enchantment of the festival in your own garden. Whether you prefer cash sales or bank transfer options, you can take a tangible memory of the festival with you.
While Longbush Cottage is open by appointment at other times, the tulips reach their peak during the two weeks before and after the festival, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in their splendid beauty.
Parking and refreshments over the weekend are generously provided by Parkinson’s Wairarapa, a dedicated part of the Parkinson’s New Zealand Charitable Trust. Your kind donations are warmly welcomed and contribute to supporting a worthy cause, allowing you to make a difference while indulging in the exquisite allure of the tulip festival.
