Business name: Tawa Road Native Nursery
Location: Kumeu
About: April through to October are the best months for native planting so that roots become establishe­d over winter to withstand a dry summer.
Services offered: All revegetati­on plants are grown from local seed and are in half litre containers­. Only $2 per plant for quantities greater than 100 plants + GST.
Areas serviced: Over summer I am preparing next years stock, so get in touch now to ensure availabili­ty of plants from April 2019!
Availability: Availabili­ty is by appointmen­t. Please phone John on 022 066 1960 to arrange a day and time to visit the nursery at 200 Tawa Road Kumeu.
Manuka, kanuka, whiteywood, karamu, flax, cabbage trees, karo, toe toe, five finger, kowhai, totara and a number of carex grasses are ideally suited for stage one revegetation. Specific sub-species grown from seed sourced from our area are ideal. We source the seed locally, propogate on site, then transplant into pb3/4 sized bags and half litre trays of 28 plants per tray. We have tens of thousands of these plants available to go out from April 2019.

We also supply and grow on some larger natives such as nikau palms, rimu, kahikatea, kauri, tawa, karaka, titoki, puriri, rewarewa, pukanui and pohutukawa. ...not to forget the stunning and critically endangered kakabeak.

Excellent service. John was very friendly and helpful. The selection of trees was amazing. My daughter is already planting her tree, and we look forward to our kakabeaks flowering. We will be back as soon as we need (or want) more natives for our garden.

Awesome plants..Bought a bunch of plants a few months ago for a difficult site and have had a 100% take.. The Kakas Beaks were particularly vigorous. Cheers John..

John Sims: Thank you very much. After they have flowered next spring a bean like green pod will appear. As soon as it goes black and started to open the seeds are ready to germinate. Soak them in water for 24 hours and they will swell up, then sew in some seed mix, very light amount of seed mix on top, keep moist and they pop up in a few weeks. They are a stunning native plant in full flower.
