WELCOME! We are a small family nursery owned by Peter Salmond and run with help from his sister Louise.

OUR SPECIALITY is a large range of alpine plants from all around the world and dwarf perennials and miniature bulbs suitable for the rock garden. For fifty years we have been growing and selling these lovely little plants by mail order to enthusiastic gardeners throughout New Zealand.

The NURSERY LOCATION, at an altitude of about 225metres, lies in the Hokonui Hills a few kilometres North West of Gore, in the lower South Island of New Zealand.

Our climate is cool temperate, with cool dry winters, wet springs, and long daylight hours and low humidity during summer. Temperatures range from approximately -8C to 30+C.
VIOLA Haslemere The highlight of our year is always a trip to the Spring Alpine Plant Show in Christchurch, hosted by the New Zealand Alpine Garden Society, where we exhibit and sell plants. In recent years we have received a number of premier awards for such treasures as Nototriche alternata, Ranunculus godleyanus and Iris sari.
Other events which we attend include the Dunedin Rhododendron Fete held in the upper Botanic Gardens in October, and Thieves' Alley held during Dunedin's Festival Week.

NURSERY VISITORS - Visitors to the nursery are very welcome,
preferably by appointment. Please phone to advise the time and date of your visit.
Sorry, no large groups or bus tours.
