for 75+ years

We have been growing and selling plants for more than 75 years, with several nurseries merging over about 60 years to eventually form Zealandia Horticulture.

decades of experience

There’s nothing like experience, knowledge and commitment when growing plants and a business. Zealandia’s long history is made up of a range of nursery businesses from both islands of New Zealand, dating back to the 1950s.

Our leadership team is made up of career horticulturists, engineering, technology and operations specialists with more than 250 years of experience. Yet it only seems like last week that we began.

Weekly inter-island distribution

Our nursery operations in both the South Island and the North Island, combined with our modern fleet including temperature controlled trucks, enables us to deliver nationwide twice a week to commercial growers and garden retailers from Kaitaia in the North Island to Bluff in the South Island. With over 1400 plant varieties available, we can meet any need and seasonal variation across the country.

Multicultural employer

Our team come from all sorts of backgrounds and from a wonderful variety of places. Many have been with us for a long time. We all share a passion for growing strong, healthy plants.

Environmental Performance

We have an ongoing commitment to improving our environmental performance. We take an integrated approach to pest management, which keeps pesticide use to a minimum.

We use a closed loop water system (recycling and reusing water), and biomass boilers that divert waste timber from landfill. We make and recycle packaging for about the same cost as buying it – because we think recycling is the right thing to do.

Community and Sponsorship

We support community projects across New Zealand.
