It's critical that our products stand the test of time because reputation is everything. Yours and ours. We use superior materials (like galvanised steel on our steel products and extra design features - like wheels that can be attached to the base of our troughs for portability.

We stay abreast of the latest trends, both here and overseas. We listen to feedback from garden centres and try to make your job easy. We carefully select items with aesthetics that will appeal to the New Zealand market. Items we know gardeners will love, in colours that are on-trend and features that are practical.

Pots in the right colours, shapes and sizes

People love Italy for its sense of design and style. And they love our Plasticotto Italian plant pots and hanging baskets for the same reason. Straight from Italy, these pots come in fabulous, trendy colours - perfect for enhancing your indoor and outdoor areas. And they're available in six shapes to match individual requirements.

Our plastic pots are manufactured from materials that are UV stabilized, which means we can confidently offer a 3-year guarantee against fading.

Made from reconstituted bamboo fibre, our Mercurio biodegradable Bio-Pots are quite extraordinary. You can even fling them on the compost heap afterwards!

The large containers (up to 170 litres) in our Mercurio range are fantastic for a wide variety of uses. Made from recycled black polyethylene, they come in three styles. They're strong and durable and some containers in the range are available with or without drainage holes, making them suitable for storage use or even ponds.

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
