About Us



Palms are our passion

We’ve been cultivating landscape grade palm trees, cycads and subtropicals for nearly 40 years

We are foundation members of the New Zealand Palm and Cycad Society and all of our staff are experienced, passionate palm tree experts. Our aim is to supply plants that not only look great when they are planted but establish quickly in their new environment and thrive for years to come. We have developed a specific growing system to ensure the best possible results in all of our specimens.

The Best Advice
With our extensive knowledge and experience ranging from cultivating seedlings to full landscape design and build, we are able to offer the best possible advice for any size project.


The Auckland Palm Centre Difference
Our nursery consists of thousands of landscape grade palm trees, cycads and subtropicals. We grow our palm trees in typical Auckland conditions, mostly in full sun to ensure they do not suffer any setback when planted in their new environment. Our growing systems are designed so that our palm trees look great and establish quickly from the day they are planted.

Why choose a palm from Auckland Palm Centre?
The majority of our palms are grown in their own individual bag, we do this for a number of reasons:

    • The palms suffer very little stress when transplanted. This is because the root system is mostly contained in the bag, once the bag is removed the roots will spread quickly in their new environment
    • Container grown palms are much easier to transplant and transport than field-grown specimens – there is no requirement for heavy machinery to dig the root-balls and the palms can be easily transported without the need for HIAB trucks. This also makes the planting process much more cost-effective
    • In planting situations with access problems, large container-grown palms can be planted where field grown specimens cannot
    • We also have a selection of large field-grown specimens available if required


    • Our growing systems are designed to ensure your palm is fully prepared for its new environment
    • Unlike many other nurseries, we do not grow our palms in artificial climates or greenhouses
    • We do not force rapid growth by over fertilising/watering
    • We grow our palms in full sun, exposing them to the natural Auckland climate
