Learn How Native Planting Will Transform Your Gardening Life :)

Ariana from HONO MAI | Join In

EVENT IS FILLED - NO MORE SPACES AVAILABLE. You can keep at eye on our Eventbrite page to see if a spare space becomes available.

This is a FREE to attend event on 15 Dec at 10:30am. Though if you want to buy any of the plants at the nursery you'll need your EFTPOS card.

Did you know 80% of our trees, ferns and flowering plants are endemic (found only in New Zealand).

Fall in love with Aotearoa NZ plants! Our guide and plant guru Andrew's passion and insight will have you bursting with ideas. He'll introduce you to best practices both visually and practically when it comes to incorporating native plants into your garden.

If you like, bring along pictures of your garden as well. Andrew can figure out what will work for your soil type, sun position and lifestyle. We will be taken for a walking guided tour of all the fabulous native options available.

We will meet at Sievers Grove Nursery at 10:30am. Bring appropriate shoes and clothing to suit the weather. A great day to be shared with both beginner gardeners and experts alike.

Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Simon Woolf visited the South Island over Christmas and he took this beautiful picture of a kotuku.

"Back in the 1970's I got to know National Forest Service Photographer John Johns. John was a phenomenal photographer, who was both technically and creatively brilliant. John was a true gentleman. He shared his knowledge freely too.
One of his many amazing photos was a Kotuku in flight, however his photo was very different to other Kotuku photos I had seen. It was the white bird against a white sky, and in Black and White. It was a beautiful piece of art and showed The Kotuku, our White Herons features so precisely.
John Johns along with Geoff Moon would be our greatest ever wildlife bird photographers. They largely worked with film, creating images in a darkroom, and shooting with manual lenses, They respected their environment immensely.
This Kotuku photo, taken yesterday, is a tribute to John, and what he taught me all those years ago. I was very fortunate to have John and Geoff, who both passed away some years ago now, as friends and mentors".
