Yes – Kaipara Coast Plant Centre & Sculpture Gardens are open all Waitangi weekend including Waitangi day, usual hours 9am to 5pm.


We have noticed a real trend over the last 6 months for people to concentrate their energies on improving their own gardens rather than selling up and moving to a new one. Consequently we have had one of the busiest summers we have ever had.

With property prices going down, spending money on your garden can add a lot of value to your own property, as well as making your place a much nicer place to live.

This time of year is a great time of year to plan ahead. A good way to help you plan ahead would be to come in to see Kaipara Coast Sculpture Gardens, which are our own display gardens. It is a very pleasant time of year to visit the gardens. We suggest allowing at least an hour, as there is a lot of information to look at on the way around, as well as a wide selection of quality sculptures by local artists, most of which are for sale.


The Sculpture Gardens will be open until 9:00pm on Valentines Day, 14th of February. This is a great opportunity to bring a picnic dinner and picnic rug, and enjoy an evening in the gardens. We will be limiting numbers, so please book ahead by sending an email to: david@plantsnz.co.nz, or giving us a call on 09 420 5655. Normal gardens entry charge of $10 per adult applies.


On Sunday 15th February 10:00am, Sally Lush (Curator of Kaipara Coast Sculpture Gardens) will take a guided tour around the gardens. She will talk about the various pieces and answer any questions you may have. To book, email Sally on: sculpture@plantsnz.co.nz. Numbers will be limited. Allow around 1.5 hours to walk around the gardens. Normal gardens entry fee applies.


One of the new services we are offering in 2009 is a garden maintenance service. If you are too busy to do things yourselves, or you need a bit of a hand every now and again to help keep up, let us know, and we can come around to give you a hand. To find out more, send an email to: david@plantsnz.co.nz, with a few details about what you require & where you are.


This year our focus is on prompt service, quick call backs, plus keeping plant prices as low as possible to ensure you get the best value for your money whenever you shop with us. Please let us know how we are doing, and if we don’t provide service up to your expectations please let us know as we will know where we need to make changes.

We look forward to seeing you at the Plant Centre soon,
