Eco-sourced production

Both Nelson City and Tasman District Councils require an ongoing supply of plants for projects around their districts. One of Nelmac’s specialties is growing eco-sourced plants from seed. There are ongoing challenges with this, such as the seed being unavailable or not germinating. Nursery assistants have to be mindful when sourcing these special seeds because often they are scarce due to the time of year or poor weather.

Hanging Baskets with Irrigation

Every year the CBDs of Nelson and Richmond come alive with blooming flower baskets that hang from verandas along the city streets. Nelmac prepares these baskets from planting seeds to germination, to carefully grooming them until they are hung each spring. Nelmac also prepares irrigation lines that water each basket. The baskets are a beloved city tradition and residents and visitors alike remark on them each year as a distinguishing feature of the Nelson CBD.
