About the Wairau Tour

Bordered on one side by the Richmond Ranges and on the other by the Wither Hills, the Wairau plain is the primary grape-growing area of Marlborough. On this tour you’ll see a range of garden styles, including the Hammond Garden and an equally diverse selection of creative and inspiring gardens, often surrounded by vineyards growing Marlborough’s best-known grape varieties.

About Michael McCoy

With all the twists and turns of 2020, Rapaura Springs Bloom in the Boom is incredibly fortunate to be welcoming back one of its most popular, knowledgeable and entertaining guest speakers, the multi-talented Michael McCoy. Garden designer, writer, TV presenter, blogger, international garden tour guide and keen home gardener, Michael is not only versatile, but he also thinks deeply about what gardens mean to us, and what they can be in the future. In his keynote evening talk, New Directions in Planting Design, Michael shares some of his core beliefs: that the era we’re living through gives us a unique opportunity for new thinking about planting design for gardens and parks; and that this could be the most productive period in all of garden history – a productivity partly fuelled by the challenges of climate change, and partly by a recognition of the potential to introduce the unique beauty and dynamism of natural plant communities into our gardens. Join us for a glass of bubbles as Michael takes us on a tour around the globe, checking out the most ground-breaking work and discussing its relevance to private gardens in New Zealand.

About the Garden Party
For many, the annual Garden Party is the absolute highlight of the weekend. This year we’re once again celebrating Bloom in the Boom at the grand and opulent Longfield at Fairhall. The party at Longfield last year was a huge hit, we strongly recommend that you be there!
