Tickets are able to be purchased at the gate $15. Eftpos or cash.

Over the past six years, thousands of Tulips have been planted throughout the garden; this year saw some 6,500 bulbs from 50 varieties planted. They have thrived in the Wairarapa conditions of wet winters and long dry summers, with many varieties having naturalized and returning year after year.

The 2022 Tulip Festival is an opportunity to stroll through the different garden rooms enjoying colour-themed displays planted in borders and an extensive collection of pots around the garden. Tulips are treated as border plants and used as part of perennial borders to extend the flowering season rather than as a standard bedding plant. For 2022 new garden rooms have been developed each with a different colour theme.

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

Longbush Cottage is now is in its seventh season, if you don’t get the opportunity to visit the for the festival Longbush Cottage is open for garden visits from 1 September until the end of April 2023. The gardens change throughout the summer season – there is always an array of colours and something new to see for return visit!
