Hi Jo
Just to let you know I've got the plants & they're great. Thanks so much. :-) Jenny

Great packaging by the way. The clear top, so the plants can be seen, really shows that the package must be kept right way up.

Hi Jo
The plants were in the porch when I got home today. They look in good order, Many thanks – quick delivery and not tipped over.
Kind Regards, Isobelle

Good Morning Jo,
First of all let me say how impressed I am with the quality of plants that I have purchased from you this year. I will certainly be ordering more from you again soon and I have been highly recommending that friends and family do the same. I know that you work very hard; so give yourselves a big pat on the back!
Kind Regards, Amerigo

Hi Jo,

Thanks for the weld and dyer’s chamomile which are all planted out and loving the mix of warm sunny days and rainy days!
I am excited to plant the madder and woad as well, so can I please order 6 of each when they arrive.
Thanks very much

Thank you so much - my order arrived at 8.00 a.m. this morning in perfect condition.  Really packed well in their little pots.  Can't wait to see them grow and will place an order in the future for a few more I would love.
Barb, Waikanae Beach

thanks for such amazingly informative website! I wish we could visit your farm and meet you both! What you are doing is truly inspiring.
Peter and Anita

First off - thankyou for existing! I've just found this website and it's a wealth of information that I've been searching for!

Thank you Jo, we picked up the tree this morning.  It looks healthy and vital. I am looking forward it joining our little food forest, and the enrichment it will bring to our lives, both nutritionally and spiritually. I look forward to getting more plants from you in the future,
Cheers, Michelle

Hi Jo, The Sea Holly arrived last week in great condition. Credit to yourselves and the courier.
They are all in the ground and I can't wait the see the results. Thankyou. Regards Trish

Hi Jo,
My/your seedlings arrived on my doorstep this morning. They are so healthy; I’m thrilled.

I posted a photo to your facebook page of one my tommy toe tomato plants I got as a seedling from you, it was prolific. I think we got at least 50kg of tomatoes off the one plant, it was insane!
Thank you,  Georgina

Your transplants are the basis of my garden…they do SO well.  Thank you for growing great quality. Warm regards, Phyllis Tichinin, Biological Soils Consultant

My girlfriend and I bought some of your wonderful seedlings at the Otane market a few weeks ago, as we headed back to Wellington. They were planted in the garden with love and a few words of encouragement. We had veges and lettuce already planted, bought from a 'mainstream' garden centre about 2-3 weeks before. Your plants have taken root and are way ahead of the other's already, the 'mustard plant' is a delight in our salad. So your stock, care and quality is some of the best I have seen in many years of putting green things in soil:) Just thought you may wish to get some feedback and know for sure that what you're doing is working, from a customer's perspective. Many thanks and warm regards, Paul Mattocks.

I have been delighted with your plants. They do not seem to have been ‘forced’ and therefore, are easily transplanted. You seem to have plants that are in season. I am not keen on buying plants that are NOT good for planting when i purchase them.The labels are informative and I like that! Your stall seems a happy place. I like to buy from a place that has a good energy! A.W.

I bought a punnet of your tomato plants (variety: Ace) the other day.  I planted them out straight away, then, two days later, I couldn't believe they had all fitted in that little punnet.  Nice, sturdy seedlings thanks.   Rachel Pomeroy Tutor: Certificate of Applied Organics and Biodynamics, Taruna College, Havelock North

Faultless on quality. Service fantastic! R.P.

Plants from Kahikatea Farm seem to flourish very well in our garden, they appear very robust and vibrant.  Plus we simply love their energy! Kanjini and Tom, Wanstead

The quality of the plants I have bought has been superb and what I have really noticed was their ability to establish quickly and progress fast whereas others I have bought are often either eaten overnight or wilt and struggle to get established.  They seem resilient! Liz Bayliss, Waipukurau

Lovely vigorous plants. You have introduced me to lots of different herbs and perennials. S.Hood, Otane

The basket was great! Easy care and lasted ages (still grazing from it now). Miner's lettuce a particular favourite - like a mix of crisp salad greens/leaves and sprouts. Also enjoyed new (for me) varieties like plantain. Attractive addition to my deck and portable too! Would make a great xmas gift - and best of all, the recipients could take the basket on holiday with them (great for camping)! Kate, Auckland

I was ecstatic to find plants we rarely come across. Fantastic ongoing supply means I can keep my garden full even in the colder months. The seedlings are healthy and incredibly hardy as survival rate has been 100% - really good considering my hit-and-miss gardening skills! Am picking salad greens and herbs I planted a few weeks ago. Thanks for providing the locals with beautiful organic seedlings. A great way to start in a spray free garden. Rose

Your transplants are the basis of my garden…they do SO well.  Thank you for growing great quality .
