About Maryflower

Maryflower is a backyard nursery situated in Grenada Village, Wellington owned and operated by Annemarie van der Slot – Verhoeven.

Being born in the Netherlands, flowers and plants are in my DNA. As a young girl I loved spending hours and hours in the garden where I learned a lot from my grandmother who was a real gardener. Gardening has always been my hobby beside a busy working life. It is now time to make gardening a bigger part of my life.

Gardening is my passion. I love sharing that with everyone who crosses my path. Building several gardens from the scratch in The Netherlands and in New Zealand and professional horticulture training at Agribusiness NZ gave me lots of experience how to grow up plants.

I started selling plants just as a way of sharing my propagation success. This has grown out to Maryflower backyard nursery. My passion and experience in gardening and growing plants have resulted in the production of healthy and high quality plants.  They are grown in the windiest spot of Wellington so well adapted to the Wellington climate.  We stock a diverse set of plants  ranging from native shrubs, hebes, ground covers, flaxes, grasses and perennials which belong in a more English style cottage garden. Have a look in the shop for our current stock.

Enjoy your journey on the website but don’t hesitate to contact for any further queries.

Warm regards,

Annemarie
