About Us

Kerry has spent over 20 years in the Horticulture industry. A year studying Horticulture at Hamilton Gardens in 1994 was followed by many years working around various garden centres across the North Island. A passion for trees and shrub knowledge in particular has built an extensive knowledge in ornamental gardens.

Since heading back into Landscape Gardening in 2015 we started growing our own plants to provide our clients with more affordable plants for their new gardens. The range has grown and grown to feature a great range of ornamental & edible shrubs, ferns & perennials.

In 2018 we decided it was time to expand operations so have made the move to a lifestyle block in Waipukurau. 2 acres at 2070 State Highway 2 is giving us lots of room to expand our range and numbers.

If your looking for quality affordable plants and advise get in touch, we’re happy to help get your garden growing in the right direction!
