There are currently no plants for sale in the Shop (mail-order) part of this website, as we don’t have time to upload them nor to deal with mail orders.
If your enquiry is for a small number of low value plants then start planning a trip to the nursery.
International orders are no longer possible from our reduced facilities.
We had to demolish our 40,000 sq ft of greenhouses to satisfy Transpower (our landlord). We cannot rebuild and we cannot afford to relocate.
We open for sales every few weeks for a few hours, see the home page for details. The rest of the time we need to be focussed on production. We had many years of being open 7 days a week and we like this better.
We also sell (intermittently) on Trade Me under the trading name of "desertmaniacs". Most of our Trade Me offerings can be shipped anywhere in New Zealand. Generally they are shipped in the pot (not bare-rooted). We are very good at packing them.
Our courier will attempt to obtain a signature on delivery. If no-one is present at the address, the parcel will be left in what the courier considers to be "a safe place". If your residence does not have such a place or you are not prepared to risk the parcel being left in such a place, then please give us a Delivery Address that will have someone able to SIGN during business hours. Placing of an order implies acceptance that no claims will be accepted for lost deliveries to unattended addresses.
The shipping charge may include a Rural Delivery surcharge for Rural Delivery addresses.
You are welcome to visit our nursery in Mt Wellington when we are open (intermittently) to the public.
