I loved everything about my gift, and the stunning Kowhai I received is a beautiful ongoing reminder of my dear friend. I would recommend giveplants.co.nz to anyone who wants to create a special moment for someone.Bridget Dougherty - Upper Hutt

A plant is a long-lasting, living gift. It may be a cliché, but plants really are a gift that keeps on giving.

The best way to tell you about the company is to explain why we established Give Plants. In 2009 a close family-friend passed away. His wife received many bouquets of flowers which led us to thinking:
We've always given plants instead of flowers because plants last; they're a living gift. After travelling to the funeral and returning home, I went online to purchase a quality plant to be delivered to our friend. I discovered that there were no real on-line solutions available to give plants as gifts in New Zealand. I am not saying that you couldn’t purchase plants on-line at all, but we really wanted to send a quality, good-sized, hardy plant in appropriate packaging that didn’t cost the earth.
My wife Kirsty and I talked about the problem. In her pragmatic style, she said I should either do something about it or stop complaining! So I did something about it.
We’ve set up Give Plants with a simple aim; to provide good quality, well-packaged gift plants on-line. We hope that you love the concept as much as we do and enjoy giving plants. We are proud to be 100% New Zealand owned and operated.

All our plants are sourced from one of New Zealand's leading Nurseries. Our nursery partner produces in excess of 300,000 plants per year to a vast client base which spreads from the far north to the bottom of the South Island. We work closely with them to ensure that good supplies of quality plant gifts are available on the site. The nursery has a wide product range and manages the plants to achieve optimum quality.
Give Plants' philosophy is simple; work with the best to bring you the best plant gifts on the market. The nursery manages all our dispatches. This way we're able to deliver gifts throughout New Zealand that are in the best possible condition.
We have designed our own corrugated cardboard boxes, which come in two sizes. They’re made from 68% recycled paper and the rest is from sustainable trees grown in New Zealand. The boxes are fully recyclable. They’re designed to protect the plant during delivery, by locking the plant in place. They also look smart when they’re delivered. The boxes open easily and have slots inside to allow a greeting card to be added without the need to use glue or extra packaging.
Each plant is placed inside a plastic bag that is secured to prevent soil loss and to retain the moisture that the plant needs. Please dispose of these bags carefully in the recycling.
Large size plants are then tucked into handy, drawstring tote bags. Finally, both plants are secured into their boxes for safe delivery.

Olives can serve many purposes; as a windbreak, an ornamental tree, and, of course, for their culinary fruit and oil. Olives grow exceptionally well in pots too, which means they are a perfect gift idea city gardens.\r\n
