Plant Care 

  • Soil: Prefers moist, well-drained, rich in organic matter soil with a slightly acidic pH.
  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Reduce watering in the winter.
  • Temperature: Ideal in temperatures between 15°C to 25°C. Protect from temperatures below 5°C.
  • Light: Thrives in partial shade; too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves.
  • Fertilising: Use a balanced NPK fertilizer like 10-10-10 every two months during the growing season.
  • Pruning: Prune lightly to maintain shape and encourage bushier growth. Remove any dead or diseased foliage.
  • Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch to help retain soil moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Pest Control: Look out for common pests such as scale and aphids. Treat with appropriate insecticides as needed.
  • Flowering and Fruiting: Produces clusters of pink flowers followed by bright red berries that are attractive but toxic if ingested.
  • Potting: Suitable for container growing. Choose a pot with good drainage and room for root growth.
  • Feeding Regime: Moderate feeding during the growing season promotes lush foliage and supports flowering and fruiting.

We ship our plants and garden supplies throughout New Zealand. Due to the increased costs of shipping and packaging, we now apply a minimal delivery charge. After offering free shipping for three consecutive years, we find it necessary to adjust this policy to align with current market conditions. However, we have lowered our prices to help offset this change.

Please note, we do not ship plants or garden supplies internationally from New Zealand. We do export plants and tissue culture materials from our overseas nursery, which requires a minimum order. Please contact us at to discuss your specific requirements.

Additional Delivery Information

  • We dispatch our plants year-round, as most are shipped with soil. During the winter months, we closely monitor weather conditions and may temporarily delay shipments if the weather is particularly severe. Our packing process includes adding insulation when necessary to protect the plants against temperature extremes.
  • In summer, we ensure that plants are thoroughly watered before they leave our nursery. Occasionally, we may need to ship plants bare-rooted, particularly when they cannot be comfortably re-potted into smaller packaging for shipping. We will always discuss this with you in advance if your plant needs to be shipped in this manner.
  • It's important to note that shipping can be a stressful experience for plants, often due to spending several days in a dark, confined space. While most plants withstand this with little to no stress, some may experience leaf drop. However, they generally recover quickly with some additional care, including proper watering and gradual reintroduction to light after arrival.
