A short history, of Riverside Horticulture...

Riverside Horticulture is a family business based in Rangiora, North Canterbury. It was one of the first nurseries in New Zealand, being established in 1855. The original company, Ivory Nurseries was set up by Mr William Ivory and ever since, the business has remained with family ownership. Today, Andrew Dartnall, a descendant of Mr Ivory and seventh-generation horticulturist operates the nursery.

We are passionate about keeping NZ beautiful by producing and supplying superior plants, to help clean up our waterways and reduce NZ’s carbon footprint. Riverside is also committed to the community by working along side schools and community groups to help them do their part in making our wonderful country even more beautiful.
