The Garden

Daltons Plantation will showcase new plants, products and different garden styles to the gardening public in a 10 acre development adjacent to Daltons operating site in Matamata.
Utilising the design skills of one of New Zealand’s leading garden designers, Xanthe White, Daltons plantation will showcase up to twenty ‘garden rooms’ highlighting different garden styles in a constantly changing and diverse mix of plants and landscaping themes.

* The Courtyard, in front of the homestead with family and friends standing or seated. The Homestead, this is more suited to a smaller and more intimate ceremony as space inside the homestead is limited for guests.
* The Japanese Garden, this is a multi level garden that is newly planted and is ideal for a small and intimate situation with very unique surroundings including a stunning water feature.
* The Lawn Vista, this is a most popular venue for bigger events and has enough space to accommodate any number of guests. The Lawn Vista is beautiful in its own entity or a marquee to ensure no worries with the weather enter your day

The Gardener

“This is the most exciting venture I have been involved in and I am sure the results will speak for themselves”, says designer and partner Xanthe White.
