About Us






In October 2005 we purchased an established garden, lavender and rosemary propagation nursery in Waiuku, South Auckland, and became custodians of the North Island Lavender Collection.

Our aim was to restore the gardens to their former glory providing a fragrant, beautiful tourist attraction and continue to build upon the work of former owner, Peter Carter, by offering the greatest selection of lavender species in New Zealand.

We had a lot of hard work ahead of us but we are now well on the way to achieving our goal.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss your needs.

About Our Plants



Our plants have been imported from all over the world.

In addition to the varieties offered for sale, we also hold a collection of plants subject to PVR (Plant Variety Rights).

These may be viewed in our Visitors’ Garden.

Plants range in price from $2.50 to $8.00 depending on size of plant or size of order. Plants can be couriered around the country.
Plant stocks change weekly so contact us for up-to-date availability.
