WELCOME! We are a small alpine plant nursery owned by Peter Salmond.
Hokonui Alpines specialise in a large range of alpine plants from all around the world and dwarf perennials and miniature bulbs suitable for the rock garden. For fifty-five years we have been growing and selling these lovely little plants by mail order to enthusiastic gardeners throughout New Zealand.

The nursery LOCATION, at an altitude of about 225 metres, lies in the Hokonui Hills a few kilometres North West of Gore, in the lower South Island of New Zealand. Our climate is cool temperate, with cool dry winters, wet springs, and long daylight hours and low humidity in summer. Temperatures range from -10C to 30+C.


NEW ZEALAND GARDENERS: Our CATALOGUE of plants available by mail order features an ever-changing selection of ALPINE and ROCK GARDEN PLANTS perfect for growing in container gardens, planters, pots, rock gardens, walls, paving and raised beds.
