Delivery – For now, order your plants online! We will arrange contactless deliveries on Fridays
Our plants are only available on Great Barrier Island. All prices include GST
Our vegetable seedling varieties are chosen for their suitability to the season, growing conditions on Great Barrier Island, disease resistance and especially for their FLAVOUR! We have grown almost all the varieties here ourselves.
We grow traditional, open-pollinated heirloom varieties as well as F1 hybrids (usually for their increased disease resistance and production), always from untreated seed and organic where possible.
Seedling Delivery – Our seedlings will be delivered during the timeframe you choose below. We will be in touch to let you know when to expect your plants.
Herbs have to be just about the easiest plants to grow and the great thing is that most of them are perennial. Here is a selection of herbs that do well on Aotea and will bring your meals to life!
Herb Plant Delivery – Our seedlings will be delivered during the timeframe you choose below. We will be in touch to let you know when to expect your plants.
On offer is a range of gorgeous colourful flower seedlings, many from our own hand collected seed. Not only do they feed the soul with their beauty, they also provide much-needed balance in the vegetable garden, supplying nectar and pollen for many useful insects that will pollinate crops as well as help control unwanted pests such as aphids and caterpillars!

|Fertiliser, Dolomite Lime||5kg||$12.00|
Dolomite lime is a natural mineral blend of calcium carbonate (lime) and magnesium carbonate.
Dolomite should only be used if you know you have a magnesium deficiency. Usually well-draining soils and sandy soils will be more susceptible to magnesium deficiency. Generally clay soils have plenty of magnesium, and dolomite should not be added to these soils as it can make the soil’s structure even tighter, making it hard to water and work.
|Fertiliser, Soil Force||5kg||$12.00|
Composted rock phosphate with humic acid, fish meal and paramagnetic basalt rock dust. This is the fertiliser we have been using for the last 4 years. It provides calcium, phosphorous, nitrogen, potassium, trace elements, carbon and beneficial soil bacteria and fungi.
Use 1-2 handfuls per square metre of garden, raked into the soil. BioGro Certified
|Pest Control, Bt||20g||$5.00|
Bt is the spores of the bacteria Bacillus thurungiensis. It is used to protect plants against caterpillar damage. It works by infecting the caterpillars that ingest it and killing them.
Bt should be sprayed on plants in the evening, as sunshine will deactivate it. Spray when you notice the white butterflies re-appearing or on noticing caterpillar damage. Use on brassicas, tomatoes (against tomato fruit worm and looper caterpillar), lettuces (diamondback moth caterpillars)
|Pest Control, Dusk Slug and Snail Bait||400g||$10.00|
The active ingredient in Dusk is chelated iron. It is non toxic to mammals and birds, but will affect freshwater animals. This is a water-resistant commercial formulation that will remain active after rain. Apply sparingly as needed, around individual plants or around the border of the garden beds.
