Waimea Nurseries



Waimea Nurseries is a leading supplier of trees to garden centres and nurseries trading directly to the public. You’ll find more information on our products on this site in the home gardeners section.

We grow the country’s best range of fruit trees, berry plants and nut trees, including new varieties like the dwarf apple ‘Blush Babe’‘Flatto™’ Peaches and NectarinesFeijoa ‘Kaiteri’, ‘Anatoki’ and ‘Kakariki’ and the purple leafed Nectarine ‘Mabel’.  To complement our collection of fruit trees, we also grow a range of top-performing varieties of Berry plants and Nut trees

Our excellent growing conditions in Nelson provide an ideal environment for deciduous Ornamental Trees. We are especially proud of our fantastic grade of grafted standard Prunus (Flowering Cherries), but our team also grows an excellent range of Quercus (Oaks), Fagus (Beech) and Betula (Birches) amongst our range of classic trees.  Along with these classic trees, our Topiary range is incredibly popular for formal plantings in both contemporary and classic gardens. The medium-sized grade provide a competitive retail price. 

Few other nurseries would give the back-up marketing support provided by Waimea Nurseries. We place regular advertising and advertorials in NZ Gardener, Weekend Gardener and Go Gardening, along with online advertising on LandscapeDesign.co.nz and NZ Gardener's Get Growing email magazine.  We send a monthly direct-to-consumer email to over 2000 gardeners, giving seasonal tips, new variety information and growing advice. We have a popular Facebook page with a growing base of keen followers, a Blog on our website and an active Pinterest page with many inspirational photo ‘boards’.

We visit Canterbury, Nelson, Marlborough and lower North Island garden retailers regularly with our sales van to display samples of available plants. Contact us to find out when we are next in your region. 

For all trees we supply informative ‘Tufflock’ labels printed with detailed descriptions plus colourful plastic labels for most varieties.  We can print barcodes and retail prices on the Tufflock labels (conditions apply).

Pre and post-purchase information service is supplied here online for your customers. Our new ‘wish list’ function enables consumers to create a shopping list of Waimea trees to bring instore.
