Our Story

Residing in Puriri Lane flanked by a grand old Puriri tree, we are growers of "Yesterday's flowers for today's gardens" 

We source many seed varieties of plants from yesteryear, from the best seed houses worldwide and grow our plants with love and care for you - the home gardener. Our store features a selection of unique varietals that are not only great for cutting but also attract bees and butterflies to your garden.  Many of these vintage style plants have stood the test of time and are to this day still prized for their beauty, and other star qualities that still continue to captivate us after so many years.

 If you like what you see, don't wait too long before you snap them up - some plants are stocked throughout the year but others will make a brief appearance because we prefer to grow variety and therefore do not grow huge numbers of plants or it simply maybe because only a few seeds may have germinated. 

 Lovers of all things garden related, we also have a carefully curated range of garden-wares and botanically inspired gifts… something for everyone

 Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter, follow us on Instagram or Facebook  to stay in touch regarding all that is new, our workshop program, nursery open days as well as and tips and tricks via our Garden Journal

Let us help you add a touch of yesteryear to your garden
