Want to grow new plants in garden?

Joshua from

We recently introduced new plants in our nursery, now it's time to spread them into your gardens.
This weekend we present you Dwarf Toe Toe.
It is a popular grass plant native to New Zealand, usually found in our coastal regions. The plant was originally used to line walls and ceilings of early Māori homes.

Currently in our nursery are 68 miniature Toe Toe, also known as Chionochloa Flavicans.
We recommend planting these along hedges or to fill up empty spaces in your garden.

The plant’s most recognisable features are its heavenly cream-coloured plumes and weeping green leaves. They will grow up to 1 metre tall and can support all types of rough weather conditions. Although, perhaps the most appealing aspect of having Toe Toe in your garden is how low maintenance they are. Toe Toe leaves can be left untrimmed and their plumes untouched with little effect on their overall appearance.

So if you’re looking for a native, low maintenance and visually stunning plant, the miniature Toi Toi may be the one for you.

Price: $7.50

Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

This week's featured bird is the oystercatcher, courtesy of Simon Woolf.

"Pretty rapt to see a clutch of oystercatcher, chicks and their parents, on Wellington's coast tonight. The adult birds were back from last year, and have three young ones in tow.
The adult bird had just caught a worm and the competition was on, as to which bird would get a feed. The bird at the back is the runt, and was also the chick that was attacked by gulls.
It was also the chick that was not in any way defended by the parent birds, while the other two birds were well cared for. You certainly know which chick is the runt, when it runs only metres away from you, after being chased by a gull, and neither of the parent birds felt the inclination to attack me!
Life is cruel for a baby oystercatcher, however if you are the runt of the clutch, life is really hard!"
