CHIMONANTHUS PRAECOX - WINTER SWEET.
A plug for this very under rated plant and almost forgotten bush which has the most gorgeous scent from its attractive small flowers growing on the stem in early - mid winter (flowering time will depend on where in NZ you are and your local climate.

Our olives are around 3 years old and will produce fruit for you in the forthcoming season - price for a 25ltre bagged tree at around 1.5-1.8m tall $40 plus gst.
Re-locating a tree fern We sometimes get asked the question "we have a tree fern (not sure what variety) and we want to relocate it from its present position - can we do that and will it regrow?"
Notes on Tree Ferns To many people one tree fern looks just the same as any other and we are often asked for a "ponga" and the requester expresses surprise that there is more than one variety!!!
