About Us


Mauways Nursery was started up back in 1994 as a small nursery growing  a few hundred plants to where we now grow 1000's of  plants for sale at any one time, in other words it was a hobby that has now grown to where we employ 2 full time staff and 2 part time staff members who works in the nursery and in the gardens weeding and maintaining the gardens.

Donna Works both in the potting shed and in propagation and helps run outside as well and comes to us with a lot of knowledge from working for other nurseries

Toni is our weedogist (weeder/Gardener) With a huge love of gardens plants etc and comes to Mauways with a great passion for plants. 

Then there Tracey I (B1 our nick name for Tracey 1 name after the Banana's in pajama's) she is one of our part-timers and works where ever needed in the nursery

Then there is Tracey2 (B2) who is our potty Potter and is in the potting she'd potting up new plants for the nursery

Our gardens are open to the public to come and look at.

We have tried to name all our plants in the garden for easy recognition for the customers.

We also offer garden Groups that come to the gardens to visit morning or afternoon tea with home baking and a chance to wonder the gardens in spring and summer into Autumn and to shop as well which we all love to do. So give us a ring to book tea and scones with jam and cream and slices and savouries YUM! etc.  So please ring us to make a booking. Ring on 06 3229863 or email we would love to have you.
  We harvest a lot of the material from our gardens for propagation in the nursery to provide stock for sale to the general public.

We also do something a little different with our plants in that we ( Wayne ) travels to markets through the lower half of the North Island and coast to coast doing home and garden shows markets as well as farmers markets. This was our main way of selling plants but as we have grown our website has taken over and we now have customers from the top of the Nth Island to the bottom of the Sth Island and with gate sales as well and along with councils and landscapers we a busy all the time. What you see on the website is what is available and if you don't see please feel free to ask if we grow it and when it will be available

With our web site our aim is to have a photo for each plant we sell so you the gardener can see what the plant looks like when flowering etc.

So welcome to the Mauways web site. I hope you enjoy looking around on the web pages to see what we have available and if you see a problem on the web please tell me so I can correct it if necessary. CHEERS


OUR MOTTO IS: We Grow Them Tough!!

Happy gardening.
