relaxing!I love gardening, I love our nursery, and I love our farm. But it's a lot of hard work and our Hawke's Bay Summers can be pretty hot. Once the nursery has been watered each day, this is what I'll be doing! Hope you can enjoy a bit of relaxation too:)  Someone fill up my glass please.....

Otane Market

otane marketWe are currently taking a break from Sundays at Otane market to focus on other projects such as expanding the nursery. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. If you are in Central Hawke's Bay you'll find our plants at Nature's Nurture in Waipawa, or we can deliver a large box of plants for just $5 to some non-rural areas.
