We have a passion for Herbs

Plants that have a use, both culinary and medicinal have a facination for us, one we like to share. The whole world is a rich source of plant life, many which are allowable into NZ. We buy seeds from many different countries and usually try several new plants in our environment each year. Plus....we do them hard!! Once a new plant is about 6 months old, we expose it to our winters, outside, and observe how they cope with the cold, excess rain, and bugs. After this test we then are prepared to offer the plants to you, our customers.

If you have any special requests we are happy to try and source seeds for you and check with MAF to see if they are allowable.

Herbs are an important source of food and are used extensively for health enhancement. Adding herbs to your food is an excellent way to provide variety in your diet.

We have just moved our propagation out to a clean (no trees dropping leaves) flat area on a farm at the head of the Raglan harbour. With lovely fresh spring water all year round we will not have a worry about getting plants through the summer months.

Watch this space for open days at our new facility. 

We will have open days between September and March, but are yet to set the dates.
