Little Gem

Welcome to Little Gem Nursery. We are a small Hawkes Bay Garden Centre & Nursery, but what we lack in size we make up for in passion for supplying fantastic plants.

We believe in providing affordable quality plants that will thrive when transplanted in to your garden. Call in and visit our garden centre when your passing through Waipukurau, we are just north of the bridge.

We have a Garden Design service available if you need some help in the right direction. We can help plan and implement your garden project. And we also offer Garden Maintenance services, whether it’s just a one off clean-up or regular maintenance we can get your garden into shape.

We ship plants all over New Zealand please contact us for freight rates to your door.

Contact us if there is something specific you are looking for.

Winter Tree Orders

It may not be the time to plant but it is certainly the perfect time to be planning! We have put together a list of trees we can source this winter and now is the time to order to avoid disappointment. A lot of these lines will be snapped up very quickly so the sooner we get them ordered the better. Hard copies are also available to collect from the garden centre.
Deliveries will be expected from mid July.

Gardening in isolation

Many people are suddenly finding themselves confined to their homes with little or no warning. Gardening is a great way to ease anxiety, increase physical activity and try to maintain some normalcy in troubled times.

We are here to help. We ship plants all over the country with Toll so getting them to you shouldn’t be a problem. We already sell a few of the things we grow through Trade Me, check out our current listings here. But we also stock a heck of a lot more so let us know if there is anything in particular you are looking for and if we don’t have it in stock we can probably get it.

Got a spot that you don’t know what to do with? We can also help, send us a picture of the space, your vision for what you’d like with some details on the type of soil, amount of sunlight etc and we will make some suggestions and provide a quote. We can then ship or deliver ourselves.

Or give us a call to discuss in more detail Kerry 0210504659 Mike 0220934790
