Te Kahuri Nurseries was established in 1988, and specialises in producing a wide variety of hardy plants suitable for landscaping farms, gardens and orchards.

Kahuri is a Maori word for 'sapling' or young tree, so 'Te Kahuri' translates as 'The Sapling'.

We are situated 7kms west of Eltham, at Mangatoki, between Eltham and Kaponga in South Taranaki, where the mountain dominates our landscape and weather. From our beginnings propagating shelter plants and providing planting services locally, the business has developed over the years, to include riparian plantings all around Taranaki and also mail order plant sales around New Zealand. We have expertise in a broad range of local complimentary services. Our stock range has increased considerably to include over 500 varieties to suit all situations.

Unlike a lot of nurseries we have plenty of grass and weeds growing around the place, all of which contribute to our fabulous organic compost mounds. We have a team of Wonderful Weeders who hand weed our many open ground rows, thus ensuring our soil is free from poisons and that we are growing safe and clean food plants for our customers.
