What we do and why

Because of the challenging and crazy times we live in, flowers are currently more important than ever. They are mood elevators. A speechless gift that conveys so much meaning to say “I care”. Spaces that include flowers and plants have been proven to provide a more productive and calm environment and enhance wellbeing. This is why we do what we do. To bring you and others joy.

As the largest rose grower in New Zealand, Moffatt’s offers 35 varieties of roses, nurtured in sophisticated climate-controlled glasshouses in Halswell. As well as this, we stock an extensive range of high-quality fresh cut flowers from both local and NZ wide growers.  Our expert buyers can source just about anything you could possibly need, whether large quantities of all-time favourites such as lilies, alstroemeria, chrysanthemums, freesias, carnations and orchids to niche lines of specialty varieties for those weddings and other special occasions.

Not only limited to cut flowers and foliage, we are excited to offer a range of exclusive house plant varieties and locally-made gifts. Phalaenopsis orchids and other selected indoor plants are available for wholesale and in our on-site retail shop.

 

History of Moffatts

Our history of flower growing dates right back to the 1950’s, when the Moffatt family started the company. Since then, we have grown considerably and seventy years later, we’ve seen new owners (Aroma NZ Limited) take on the ever-evolving company. Aroma NZ Limited specialize in healthcare supplements and nutraceuticals and is also a family-business that has been running for over 60 years. So the values for Moffatts will remain the same, with sights set on improving what we already do. We are excited about the possibilities ahead in the flower industry.

With all of the changes and challenges Moffatts has faced over 70 years of operation, there is one thing that has always remained consistent. That's our commitment of supplying the highest quality and extensive range of flowers. We’re so confident in this that we offer a 100% replacement guarantee.
