The Garden

Nestled in the foothills of the Waitakere Ranges, Landsent is a garden that will transport you to another world. It is one of New Zealand's earliest subtropical gardens and has on offer a world renowned plant collection. Landsendt is a refuge for many rare plants. This garden is a treat for everyone, having a 'resort' feel about it. You don't need to be a plantaholic to enjoy a visit!


The Gardener

Landsendt has been in the Endt family since 1962. The garden has evolved from a subtropical orchard to a garden featuring many unusual plants. Dick Endt travelled extensively through South America in search of lost crops of the Incas. He also fell in love with palms and was a founder of the NZ Palm Society. Carolyn and Anthony Melling (Dick and Annemarie's daughter and son in law) Have transformed the orchard and plant collection into a garden which showcases the amazing plants. They have opened up this paradise for weddings and other functions. You no longer need to go to Fiji for a tropical experience.
