About Trents Nursery

Growing Green - it's in our nature

At TRENTS, we take pride in having a green ethos as our guiding principle. This means that in every decision, we determine how we can alter our business practices and product to be more eco-friendly.

Trents is an established wholesale nursery supplying top quality plants to retail outlets, landscapers and nurseries nationwide. The nursery was established in 1983 and is still located at the original site in Prebbleton, 3km south of Christchurch.

As a wholesale nursery, we do not sell direct to the public, instead concentrating on producing best quality plants and service to retailers. To find your nearest retailer, please visit our 'Find a Retailer' page.

Our custom built infrastructure ensures plants are cultivated in optimum conditions.

Trents specialises in perennials, providing one of the largest ranges in NZ. This ensures our customers are provided with the right plants for any style, planting scheme or situation. Unlike plants reared in many other nurseries, Trents plants are grown without additional heating making them hardy and able to handle real garden conditions from the moment they're planted.

Our success rate of cutting material is among the highest in New Zealand leading to the most reliable supply of quality product.  Over 20 years we have grown to become the largest Flower Carpet producer in the Southern Hemisphere. Prolific flowering from spring to autumn, Flower Carpet Roses can be purchased and grown as bush, groundcover or standards and are available in 10 colours.
