Welcome to SUBTROPICA'S 2018/2019 catalogue


Plants are available from the nursery, by arrangement. Please email info@subtropica.co.nz if you want to purchase plants. Payment is by cash or online banking.

We provide Subtropical fruit trees that have proven reliable in New Zealand's temperate/subtropical climate, and a few of the more experimental nature, for the adventurous!

We grow most of our plants ourselves, in organic potting mix, which contains organic slow-release fertiliser. Any treatment for pests or diseases is done with organically acceptable sprays, such as Eco oil, garlic and pyrethrum etc, and any subsequent fertiliser is also organic. A few plants may be bought in, and these have not been organically grown.

The right time to plant subtropicals is when the ground is warm and they can get established. This will vary from region to region, and even from garden to garden, but the best time is from spring to late summer/early autumn.. We also stock other plants that are hardy, and these can be planted at any time.

If you have already ordered plants to be sent by courier this season, you can expect to receive them, but we regret that we will not be taking more orders to be sent out this season. This service will be resumed for next season [Oct 2019 - March 2020], and the catalogue will be open again for pre-orders some time during winter. Email me info@subtropica if you would like to be notified when that happens.

Happy eating - Claire
