Specialty seeds grown in and for Aotearoa, New Zealand.
Aunts Garden specialty seeds is a small Northland-based business. The idea for it was inspired when two gardening-obsessed friends had trouble finding affordable, fresh exotic seeds. We both share similar ethics and wanted to find a way to increase access to New Zealand grown tropical and exotic seeds without charging an arm and a leg. Between us, we have an interesting range of experience and specialties, both having focused on different areas of the plant world. Because of this, we are able to supply homegrown and harvested seeds from our own plants, and we test the viability of everything before we sell them in our seed store.
Our stock constantly changes depending on what is thriving and where our current interests lay.
We run various workshops / tours from our Kaikohe property and advertise them via our instagram and facebook accounts of the same name.
We offer specialty seeds and giftware, with a lean towards permaculture and eco-friendly, and especially the unique and unusual. We also operate a small wholesale division, from which we grow our plants and supply them in bulk to a local company with similar ethics to us for on-selling to the public. We are not currently able to take on any new wholesale customers due to our size.
