All plants are grown outdoors in Otago, in the southern belt of New Zealand. So they are inflicted with irregular weather, snow, severe frosts, far too many polar blasts and periods of hot dry weather. In other words - if they do not survive for me in my nursery then I am not interested in growing and fussing with them. If they are not attractive then they also end up in the compost bin too.
Should you have trouble finding anything specific you can either use the Search Engine on this site or contact me at I will be more than happy to help.
Shipping and processing charges are shown on the Shipping link to your left and under the Info tab. No plant or seed orders are sent out of New Zealand because of international bio-security laws. Niwashi Garden Tools however can be exported.
