We will be open from 11 am to 12.30pm Thursday 26th May, and 11am to 12.30pm Saturday 28th May. You can arrange an appointment time or without appointment you may need to wait until we let you in (just so as to keep it uncrowded). You can browse plants and buy potting mix. Masks on, and 2m distancing from other customers please.
For only Potting Mix or Trade Me winnings (no browsing) you can arrange a time for pickup 0900 to 2100 hours, 7 days mostly.

Intermittently we have items on Trade Me, under desertmaniacs.

Use email to corocacti@outlook.com, not Facebook, thanks! Text me for short answers, email me for proper answers, Facebook me to get ignored.
Please read this entire page before telling me everything you like seems to be out of stock.

Mail order is no longer offered. NO SHIPPING except Trade Me. We do not have stock to supply at wholesale rates. No lists.

(Our opening hours are intermittent so we can focus more on production. Sorry about that.)

Selling fine succulents (including cacti) since 1982.

TWICE WINNERS OF GOLD AT ELLERSLIE FLOWER SHOW

This website's Shop section is completely destocked, too time-consuming. Email requests to corocacti@outlook.com. NO SHIPPING except Trade Me and special (profitable) orders.

No lists available, too time-consuming. The Library here is a (partial) list of plants that we have grown in the past, some of which we still grow. Come to the nursery for the current selection.

Coromandel Cacti was started in 1982 by Martin Walker at Sandy Bay, Port Charles near the top of the Coromandel Peninsula. He moved the nursery in 1996 to Mt Wellington, Auckland. Eventually 4000 sq metres of greenhouses were filled, plus large outdoor areas. NZ has never had such a range of succulents available. Downsized in 2010 for a major Transpower project through the nursery property. Rebuilt the half we were allowed to retain then a policy shift regarding no buildings on Transpower land meant we had to demolish that half also! Still open to the public intermittently at 170 Mt Wellington Highway, where I continue as the Black Knight of Cac & Succ (refer the Monty Python sketch for the meaning).
