About Us

The NZ Native Plant Nursery has filled the market gap left by the defunct Waiuku operation, The Native Plant Nursery, and is producing high quality New Zealand native plant stock.

Run by Michelle Gorissen, previously the Waiuku Nursery’s manager, NZ Native Plant Nursery currently offers 50 species of New Zealand native plants and is continuing to expand the range.

We supply major reforestation and large development contracts, as well as farmers and hobby gardeners.

  • 30 years experience in horticulture

We can courier your plants or deliver smaller orders up to 800-1000 plants at a time within a 200km radius, and organise commercial transport for larger orders and those in other centres.

We currently have technical issues with our shopping cart. You can still make your selections which will be automatically forwarded to us and we’ll work out the delivery costs for you. You won’t be committed to the purchase until you have accepted the delivery cost.

The number of vehicles into the nursery is restricted, so please call us for an appointment if you’d like to collect stock, or see it prior to purchase.
