Because we grow most of our plants in our own on-site nursery, you can find natives, trees & shrubs, edibles, fruit trees, subtropicals, roses and NZ’s largest range of Vireya Rhododendrons all at great prices.
We can provide all the plants you’ll need as well as good advice to help you create a beautiful garden to enjoy & relax in.
Whether you are buying a single plant, or you’re looking for 100s to landscape the garden, you will find everything you need conveniently laid out in a compact garden centre.
If you crave something unique or unusual to set your garden apart, but have given up hope of finding anything at other garden centres or box stores, then you’ll be pleasantly surprised when you visit us. We stock a selection of hard to find and unusual plants that will set your garden apart. Our own passion is for Subtropicals.
We also specialise in Vireya Rhododendrons, in fact we have NZs largest range right here, with over 500 varieties. We don’t stock them all at once, but we’re constantly updating our selection with unique and rare Rhodos, including a range of highly scented beauties that will knock your socks off.
Not only are we passionate about providing you with great quality plant, we’re also plant fanatics at heart! That’s why we grow most of our own plants in our very own nursery located on 10 acres of land around the Garden Centre. Because we grow the plants ourselves, you can get all the expert advice to create a beautiful garden by dropping in to the Garden Centre, or get in touch right here on the website.
Unlike some outlets, our plants get a better start in life by being put in adequate sized pots, as well as that our production team are regular trimming and feeding to produce robust, bushy plants that will thrive in your garden and give you satisfaction for years to come.
We opened in June 2010 and have been expanding ever since with the aim of providing a pleasant garden shopping experience. We’re stoked to be Kerikeri’s most inspirational Garden Centre, but plans are afoot for a bigger & better shopping experience, we are currently constructing a new shop, changing the layout, vastly improving the Vireya display area & stocking many more items, to help you achieve garden success & satisfaction.
Because we don’t want those of you living “Down South” to miss out, we are able to freight nationwide, & will soon have a degree of online shopping. In Kerikeri on holiday & dying to have a shopping spree? Well you’d be surprised how affordable it is on purchases of several hundred dollars or more to have them freighted back to your door! We are also launching Plant in a Box so that people throughout New Zealand can give and receive the joy of plants.
We hope that you enjoy our plants as much as we enjoyed growing them.
We are proud to sponsor several worthwhile causes such as Kerikeri’s Roland’s Wood project, Kerikeri Rotary Garden Safari and our annual St John Ambulance Giant Pumpkin growing Competition, which is great fun with proceeds being donated to Kerkeri St John. This also has prizes sponsored by generous local businesses such as Ake Ake Restaurant, and Chang Siam Thai RestaurantSincerely, Tim, Yuan, Zeeb, Mel & production team
