Nursery

Our small urban nursery supplies an ever-changing range of plants suited to the mild maritime climate of Dunedin. We also sell plants that grow well in Dunedin now, but may be more fruitful in the changing climate developing or with the benefit of a microclimate. An important aspect of our work is identifying and trialing crops that are peripheral to our climate zone in anticipation of change.

All plants are grown with certified organic Dalton’s potting mix and sometimes homemade organic potting mix. As much as possible, rainwater is used for irrigation.
