Gulf Trees - Waiheke Island
All our plants are organic, certified under the Organic Farm NZ label. We mix up our own potting mix from organically certified ingredients and mix in the necessary fertilisers.
We are convinced that organically grown plants are stronger and hardier than those grown under chemical regimes. They are typically well developed in the root system, have a strong stem and a shorter internode length. This means a higher survival rate when planted. All our plants are propagated and grown in our nursery. We grow from seed mainly, or from cuttings where necessary.
Gulf Trees has been in business on Waiheke since 1990. We have built up a lot of knowledge about what native plants do well in the Gulf conditions, and can confidently recommend plants for hard, dry coastal sites through to wetlands and forest environments.
All plants are personally selected
