A Special Place
A magical garden and subtropical nursery set around a small lake in a hidden coastal valley behind Matapouri Bay, Northland New Zealand.
We are specialists in new and unusual subtropical plants for NZ conditions.
We sell from the nursery as well as mail order and delivery to gardeners and landscapers throughout New Zealand.
Visitors are very welcome to explore both the
garden and the nursery on the weekend and public holiday (Closed Xmas Day and
New Year), 9am - 3pm and by arrangement during the week.
Sadly, Russell passed away on the 5 December 2017 at Whangarei hospital after a short illness. Russell's partner, McGregor (Mac) in the meantime will continue to manage the nursery.
