Our Story

Residing in Puriri Lane flanked by a grand old Puriri tree, we are growers of "Yesterday's flowers for today's gardens" offering many unique and not often seen plants

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. Lovers of all things garden related, we have an inspired range of garden-ware, vintage garden finds and a beautiful range of botanically inspired gifts… something for everyone.
We hope that you enjoy our collection of plants as much as we love growing them. Whether you are looking to brighten up a border, wish to experiment with the planting scheme of the moment or indulge your passion for the unusual or hard to find, we have them all!  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.  Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter and stay in touch regarding all the beautiful vintage style plants that we will be adding, our workshop program, nursery open days and tips and tricks for adding a touch of yesteryear to your garden.
