Welcome to Bee Haven!


We can freight plants directly to your door. If you live locally you can order online and receive a 20% discount if you arrange to pick up your order.

Following my passion for collecting and growing a wide range of plants, it seemed a natural choice to grow plants for sale, after all what else was I going to do with the plants I had run out of room for.

Planting the right plants in the right place ensures the greatest success and I can help guide you depending on your own conditions. Every place in New Zealand is different and with several decades of growing in Hawke’s Bay, I can offer sound advice on what will thrive at your place. With knowledge and skills in Permaculture design, we can also help plan gardens that provide for shelter, food for wildlife and your family.

You are welcome to make an appointment to talk with us and check out our range of healthy Hawke’s Bay grown trees, shrubs and perennials, including plants for bees  food plants for you and plants to make you feel good.


We're hands on and understand growing conditions where plants will thrive. Most of our plants are grown from cuttings and seed sourced from our own garden or around Hawke's Bay.


We love pollinators and even have our own beehives. We can guide you on Bee, Butterfly and Bird friendly choices.


We offer landscape planning and design in case you need help deciding how to make the most of your space.
