Anita's Garden is an organic urban homestead located in Manukau City, only a 20 minute drive from downtown Auckland. The garden contains a broad range of both edible and ornamental plants. There is an extensive vegetable potager and herb garden. We have a dedicated rose garden consisting of fifteen different standard roses. In winter 2017, we will be adding a further eleven roses to our collection. We also grow a number of flowers year-round, including bulbs, annuals and perennials. We are in the process of developing a mini orchard consisting mainly of dwarf fruit trees, in order to increase our level of self-sufficiency. Anita's Garden was originally created in 2013 but is ever-changing and evolves constantly. Each season sees plants at a different stage of their life cycle, so there is always something bound to be flowering or fruiting when you visit.
