Goes the extra mile...

September 22, 2022

I have had the pleasure of working with Georgina Pahl – owner of Mainly Natives Plant Nursery – for the last sixteen years. At Salisbury School we have been planting an area of native reforestation according to the Tasman District Council’s planting list for Richmond/ Hope Stony Plains. Georgina’s advice as we began to plant and expand the area has been invaluable. She has certainly gone the extra mile for us and has drawn up planting plans and assisted with grant applications for this project. She has often donated her own time and is always ready to answer any questions we may have regarding further planting and provides us with quality plants.

Carolyn – it’s been amazing and humbling to work with such a passionate proponent of making positive change in community and environment! So rewarding to see what has been achieved, through trial and error sometimes, changing climate and the needs of students and staff. Another customer who has become a truly great friend!

Best Local Nursery

September 22, 2022

If you are into Native plants then THIS is the best local Nursery. One of the few that propagate locally so the plants have a much higher success rate. Georgina is very good and advised on the best plants for our large Architectural rural property.

Mainly Natives is the one!

June 20, 2022

We recently began the restoration of a one hectare lifestyle block into natives, and the thousands of seedlings supplied by Mainly Natives have successfully turned a paddock of gorse and grass into a wonderful emerging forest.

From the first contact, Georgina shared essential restoration advice and expanded our wish list to include many diverse native species suitable for our climate and soil. And that also included specialist species for a green living roof on our tiny house.

If you are looking for a personal service for your particular needs, then Mainly Natives is the one!

Fantastic for we novices!

We’ve sought Georgina’s advice and purchased from her for 10+ years. The largest job was landscaping our 3000 m2 section. We told her what we wanted in respect of privacy, wind shelter, natives, colour etc and she advised us well.

We’re rapt with our easy care, colourful, textured gardens. Georgina also advised as to what plants would thrive and not thrive in our environment in respect of soils, frost wind etc. She knows the local conditions. Fantastic for we novices.

Just when we think we are done, we always seem to want another plant and head back to Mainly Natives!. Georgina is easy to talk to, knowledgeable, helpful and honest. We enjoy all our interactions and our garden!!
