Hello and welcome to Ravenhill Nursery’s online store and website.
Closing down sale 33% discount off all plants (min. order of 4 plants required) Discount automatically applied at checkout.
My next dispatch date is Monday 27th 2020, I will be closed on Monday 20th January due to Wellington anniversay day.
My apologies to those who are finding it difficult to get hold of me. Over the last couple of months our cell phone coverage at home has only worked in fits and starts and our internet coverage the same. Spark has advised us that despite being customers for 13 years as they now have more people using their services closer to town, so the signal is too weak to reach us! Unfortunately, none of the other mobile services work at home, just as well I am finishing!
After a lot of thought and with great disappointment I am going to be closing my online store due to personal reasons. At this stage I anticipate the majority of plants will not be available after December and I will be fully closed by March 2020.
I will try to update the store with plants as they become available. However, due to time pressures I have not been as consistent at this as I would have liked, I have a lot of plants still waiting attention. I have created a clearance section for these plants plus any plants that I have large numbers of which I wish to clear.
The last things that remain are to thank all the people that have helped me, especially my husband Roger, with my nursery and being able to pursue my passion. Also, to thank the many customers that have been kind enough to purchase my perennials, many of you returning multiple times. I hope that over the next 3 to 6 months I will still be able to provide some of the perennials that we plant lovers so desire. It will be lovely to be able to get in my garden again and start to replant, I will try to save some for the rest of you!
As my list of plants becomes more limited can I recommend you have a look at Kate Jury's website www.seaflowersnursery.co.nz
Kate is a very knowledgeable plants woman and she lives and grows her plants here in Whanganui.
Ravenhill Nursery is a nursery that specialises in the propagation and growing on of herbaceous perennials, in combination with offering for sale a small range of native and exotic shrubs. The herbaceous perennials are a major passion of mine and I have long wanted to offer a range that are garden worthy, and affordable and predominantly easy to grow.
The plants are offered for sale in 9 and 11 cm. pots (see FAQ if unsure of sizing), so you can either place them straight in your garden or grow them on yourselves for future planting plans. This will hopefully make planting in groups of 3,5 or 7 etc. more affordable for you.
All the plants for sale on the website have been propagated and grown here at Ravenhill Nursery. We are situated in a valley within a valley in Okoia Whanganui and are often subjected to frosts of -3 degrees and some down to -6 degrees. This results in hardy plants for you to grow whether you live in the North or South Island.
The nursery is not open to the public, sorry. However, customers from Whanganui are welcome to contact us directly and place your order with me and I am happy to drop your plants round to you when I come in to town.
I look forward to your custom and please do not hesitate to contact us with any enquiries you may have with regards to our plants or website.
