We’re specialist growers of plants for rural properties, here to help you turn your bare block into a little slice of paradise. We can help you find the plants that’ll work as hard as you do on the farm, or create a gem of a garden that fits your lifestyle.
With over 25 years’ experience in the Auckland area, we know what works in the local conditions, whether you need a tough shelterbelt that can handle the odd hungry herbivore, or a gorgeous specimen tree for the garden that’ll look great while standing up to the rigours of climbing kids.
Come and see us in Coatesville to check out our range, or get in touch for stock enquiries, consultations or planting quotes. Don’t forget to take a look at our library of editorials for help solving common planting dilemmas.
Merry Christmas …
