WELCOME! We are a small alpine plant nursery owned by Peter Salmond.

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-three years we have been growing and selling these lovely little plants by mail order catalogue to enthusiastic gardeners throughout New Zealand.

Our ONLINE MAIL ORDER CATALOGUE features an ever-changing selection of ALPINE and ROCK GARDEN PLANTS perfect for growing in container gardens, troughs, pots, rockeries, walls, paving and raised beds.
Raoulia eximea x Leucogenes grandiceps Leptospermum Lilliput Read our page on GROWING ALPINES and ROCK GARDEN PLANTS for more details.

OUR LOCATION, at an altitude of about 225 metres, 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 in summer. Temperatures range from -10C to 30+C.

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 past years we have received a number of premier awards for such treasures as Nototriche alternata, Ranunculus godleyanus and Iris sari.
