Due to logistical difficulties, we are unable to offer shipping services for all our plants (small or fragile) and only make an exception in specific circumstances. Tropical Treasures Taranaki supplies a large range of rare, hard to find plants and will make our best effort to ship these plants so that everyone in New Zealand can enjoy these rare beauties. This service is offered on a case by case basis so please don’t hesitate to contact us. Need Palms or other outdoor plants? no problem we can ship them to you.

We have an active community on our Facebook page where we post our new arrivals. Please make sure to follow us on Facebook to keep up with the latest shipments and enquire about having one of these rare plants shipped to you.
