The Fruitful Potager

Specialising in heirloom varieties and plants grown from open pollinated seed we supply a wide range of edible plants and perennials for the home gardener who wants quality, hardy plants or something a little different.

We offer vegetable seedlings, herbs, fruiting bushes, fruit trees alpine and rockery, perennials and more. Many are unusual varieties you'll struggle to find anywhere else. With a focus on growing exceptional quality plants that will continue to survive (and hopefully thrive) once they leave our hands.

Many of the vegetable plants are only available at certain times of the year (usually spring or autumn) depending on variety.  Some varieties are also only available in limited numbers and at different times of the year. If you would like to pre-order a plant please e-mail us

The Fruitful Potager started 4 years ago and is a regular seasonal stall holder at the Timaru Farmers Market.

New plants are added often so please come back again.

Our plant trolley is at the gate 7 days per week and we also welcome visits by appointment. We currently offer a click and collect service from our website with plants by mail order coming soon...
