Serendipitous supply
When the Monarch Butterfly NZ Trust wanted to give a gift of plants, locally sourced from Rarangi Beach, east of Blenheim, they came to Oratia. Not only could we provide an eco-sourced species, it was also a plant which had since disappeared from the region!

This is the Trust's story.

August 2018 - Sale of Remaining Stock

Saturday 4th August was our last day for general trading, but the gates can be opened for buyers by appointment.

Our stocklist has shrunk dramatically since we notified people of our impending closure, but there are still some excellent plants to be found. Again, there are some species we have in lesser numbers that are not listed. We are prepared to consider any reasonable offer for bulk orders of particular lines.

Enquiries regarding plants remaining in stock can be made by leaving a phone message on 818 6467 (work) or 813 0229 (home), by emailing info@oratianatives.co.nz, or through our website. Messages will be checked regularly, but not daily. Plants that are to be couriered can be sent on Tuesdays if the order and payment is completed by the end of the previous week. Deliveries by our truck will be restricted to large numbers of plants within the Auckland area. Freight can be organised for orders going outside the Auckland area as before. Alternatively, plants can be collected at a negotiated time.

Nursery hardware

Other growers may be interested in purchasing hygiene trays, transport trays (57 x 29cm), 5cm and 7cm tubes, root-trainers or other nursery equipment.

And finally... thank you
We would like to thank all those who have been our customers over the years. Some have been such frequent visitors we now count them as friends. And thanks, also, to the many who expressed their sadness that they can visit no more. It has been heart-warming to know that so many have appreciated our efforts.
 
May you and your plantings thrive into the future.

All the best,
Geoff and Bev Davidson,
Oratia Native Plant Nursery
