Welcome to Growing Friends - Growing Friends raises money for the Friends of the Auckland Botanic Gardens which then benefits the Gardens.

We do this by propagating plants from cuttings from the gardens. Also we bring other plants into our nursery to grow on. A lot of plants we sell are donated to us from the Botanic garden nursery. There are 18 of us in the group.

Our working day is every Thursday morning 8.30am to 12.00 midday. Our nursery gate is open during these times for plant sales.

We also have plant sales on the 1st Sunday of the month, 9.00am to 2.00pm from September to May. We offer a 25 % discount on plants to Friends members on presentation of their membership card. Eftpos available.
