Welcome to Burnet's

Growing you the good life

Burnets Horticulture Ltd is proud to be a privately owned New Zealand Company by the Prebble Family, of Christchurch.

Burnets Horticulture originally traded under the name of NZ Grass Nurseries Ltd has been supplying pre-packaged Lawn seeds into the Garden Centre’s Market for over 50 years. They initially supplied Dichondra into the market and have expanded over the years to supply a complete range of specialist Lawn Mixes designed to cover the needs from the backyard lawn to the most discerning show lawn enthusiast.

Burnets Horticulture has always been a leader in the field with the introduction of new mixes and technology. With the introduction of Boston Green onto the market in the late 1980’s it heralded the start of Turf Type Ryegrass being used in the Home Lawn Market. This product has proved a revelation throughout the Country as a Superior All Purpose Lawn. This combined with the every day blends of Green Supreme (Rye/Clover) and Coated Wearwell which supplies a hard wearing low care option for the person who requires quick coverage. This is still a huge part of the market in NZ, confirmed by our sales records.

With the advent of New Treatments and New Technology of which Burnets Horticulture were the first to introduce a state of the art Coating Plant to apply these treatments. The top end of the market has changed and Burnets Horticulture with three Ezystrike blends are right at the fore front of this. Ezystrike is a specialized treatment to supply Grass Grub Protection during establishment (the only treatment with this ability), Fungicide Protection, and growth promotant. This gives your Lawn the BEST possible START.

Burnets Horticulture can therefore cover the complete spectrum of Lawnseed requirements from the everyday blends through to top of the range Full Sun, Shade and All Purpose Blends. All of the manufacture of Burnets Horticulture is done in house from the Seed Production, Coating, Treating, Mixing, Packing, and Wholesaling of the complete range. This has contributed greatly to our outstanding service, and supply record over many years.
