Puriri Lane | Floret Farm's | Discovering Dahlias | Workshop

Puriri Lane ~ January 2021

There has been a flurry of activity here at Puriri Lane as we recover from what has been a challenging year last year.  Seed supplies from overseas have been difficult leading to many out of stocks which has also been driven by the demand for our vintage style plants for which we are eternally grateful but now we need to grow lots more!

We have been very privileged this month to be featured in January edition of the NZ Gardener Magazine.  A big shout out to the magazine for featuring us.  As a small business this type of article ensures that we get our brand out there to let people know that you can have some plants in your garden from yesteryear that you don't see in every garden store, and the feedback from all our lovely customers is that they love this along with the fact that we sell botanically inspired gifts and garden wares.

This year we will be adding to those ranges with some very special products but we are just waiting on stock as freight from overseas is very difficult at present so we will be previewing what is coming in our "Coming Soon" category.  There will be lots of fabulous gifts for children to encourage exploring nature and getting into the garden which we think is a great thing to do rather than forever playing on devices.

We will be putting in place a wonderful workshop program over the coming months with lots of inspirational presenters and ways to "flower up" your homes and gardens and a few others which we will reveal more about later.

We will have more open days but at the moment we do not have enough plants so these are planned for some time in March but we will keep you updated on the Garden Journal 

In the mean time we are launching Erin Benzakein from Floret Farm's new book Discovering Dahlias so if you would like some inspiration on arranging with Dahlia's with Garden Stylist Fiona Henderson, you can read more about this event here or you can pre order a copy of her new book here The beautiful image of the Dahlia patch featured on this page is from Erin's beautiful farm - isn't it dreamy!

One of Garden Stylist Fiona Henderson's stunning creations which Fiona will show you how to style using flowers from our cutting gardens.  The below selection was picked from Puriri Lane. I am in love with these "biscuity tones"!

    Hi Julie, Thanks so much for taking the time to post a comment. We loved meeting both yourself and your mum and glad that you had a lovely day at the Floret book launch at Puriri Lane.

    Thank you for a wonderful workshop with the dahlias this morning. My mum and I both thoroughly enjoyed the day and Fionas arrangement with the dahlias. Your hospitality and excellent setting were very much appreciated. It is a welcome sight to see a nursery and garden propagating the old fashioned flowers.
