About our Partners

Kings Seeds banner

Kings Seeds (NZ) Ltd is a web based seed company supplying New Zealand gardeners since 1978. No matter how big or small, we supply everyone from large commercial operations providing salad greens to supermarkets right through to home gardeners just wanting to try a new variety of heirloom seed.  We supply all levels of educational institutions and community gardens offering discounts to these groups.
We offer the weird and wonderful as well as old favourite vegetables, flowers and herbs. Our range of organically certified seed, Microgreens, seed for sprouting, green manure crops and wildflower blends are becoming increasingly popular. We keep the seed range fresh by adopting an “out with the old and in with the new” approach maintaining a total of up to 1000 varieties and have a challenge to find exciting new additions every year.

Tui Balms & Waxes

Tui Balms & Waxes

Tui Balms are a natural healing & skin care range that is gently effective, GE free and guaranteed altogether natural. We take pride in the high quality of ingredients used. Tui Balms is a certified cruelty-free company by Choose Cruelty Free Limited as the whole product range is not tested on animals.

In the early 80s, Tui Bee Balm was designed by Colin Isles, combining only natural ingredients to create a multi-purpose soothing & healing skin care balm. The recipe was gifted to the newly formed Tui Community in Golden Bay, New Zealand, in 1984.

For the first few years, the balms were hand-made with voluntary co-operative effort by the community residents. Over the years, new recipes were created and the range increased to include balms for specific uses as well as a range for all-over body massage.

From its humble beginnings, the co-operative has steadily grown, now providing local employment for 13 part-time staff. Tui Balms is still based at Tui Community, Wainui Bay, though nowadays at its own purpose-built premises.

Tui Balms has become the supreme medium for massage. After 30 years in business, we now have a very solid following of massage & health practitioners as well as private customers in NZ and Australia, and many internet customers scattered throughout the world. To meet the demand in Europe and the UK, Tui Balms is also being produced under licence in the UK by Songbird Naturals.

Not an ordinary business

Tui Balms is a workers' co-operative whereby we aim to improve our working together continuously and set an example for a sustainable co-created business model.
We operate with minimal management hierarchies and a flat wage structure that values the participation in the business, rather than creating premiums for personal skills. Decision-making within the co-operative is generally by consensus on all important matters. Consequently, every staff member’s contribution to the business is seen as equally important.

CHIMP: Eco-Technology NZ "Love to Evolve"


We are a family-run retail nursery growing a wide range of cold hardy ornamental plants, including trees, shrubs, natives, conifers and perennials. We grow small numbers of a wide range of plants, so the plants listed on-line may not always be available throughout the year. Many of the plants are grown in our own nursery with winter frosts and snow so they are well suited to many of the cooler regions of the country. We are passionate about plants and specialise in providing you with an interesting variety of "Cool Plants for Cool Climates"

We also offer a range of garden development and maintenance services, including landscaping and design services, planting and pruning.

For healthy plants and friendly gardening advice, call in to see us at the Greenhaus, or browse our catalogue and order on-line.
