Titoki Nursery Ltd. is a specialist wholesale native plant nursery, growing plants in bulk quantities for conservation, revegetation, wetlands, farm planting, land development and shelter.


Specialist suppliers of native trees and shrubs, including locally rare species. Titoki Native Plant Nurseries has developed a strong foothold in the Nelson, Golden Bay and Tasman districts, as a major producer of quality New Zealand native trees and native plants.

For local Councils, Coast Care and the QEII National Trust, Titoki grow NZ natives specifically for conservation purposes, working with DOC & other interest groups, for native tree planting projects in the Top of the South.

If it's a landscaping project, sustainable land development, or planting in a subdivision, you'll find the largest range of native plants and native trees in Nelson, Tasman & Golden Bay.

Titoki Nursery also grows a wide range of larger 'landscape grade' native plants and native trees for garden centres, trade and public requirements.


Titoki Nursery has been involved with revegetation projects across the top of the South Island for over twenty years, supplying native plants for local Council projects, QE II National Trust, Project Crimson, Department of Conservation, Coast Care groups, mining companies, land development projects, farms and conservation minded public. Native trees and rare plants are largely grown in containers called 'rootrainers' designed especially for large scale production.

Titoki's emphasis on eco-sourcing (meaning that the plants used in restoration projects are grown from seeds collected from old, naturally established native plants), makes them a desirable partner in the supply of New Zealand Natives for DOC Projects, and Charitable Trusts.

The unique design of the rootrainer ensures excellent plant form and root structure, while also being cost effective. Survival rates after planting are consistently high.


Many of our plants have been used to establish or restore small areas of native forest on rural land, sand dune systems and coastal sites, and around wetlands in Golden Bay, Nelson & Tasman. Other sites include scenic and recreation reserves, highway berms and exotic forest firebreaks.

Working alongside DOC, Titoki produces native plants and trees in a natural environment, conducive to attracting native birds which assist by spreading the seeds.

Container beds - growing plants on contract for large projects


Seed for revegetation plants are collected from the Tasman, Nelson and Marlborough districts and the sources are fully recorded. We specialise in and concentrate on projects in this area we live in, and love, and are delighted awareness of past land-use practices and environmental issues are becoming more widely recognised and where appropriate rectified.
