Selling fine succulents (including cacti) since 1982.


Note that our website's Shop section is completely destocked, too time-consuming. Email requests to NO SHIPPING except Trade Me and special (profitable) orders. We do not have stock to supply at wholesale rates.

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, but still open to the public intermittently at 170 Mt Wellington Highway. And sometimes selling plants and accessories online.
