Oderings Garden Centre
In the autumn of 1997, Oderings purchased the land and assets at 57 Brookvale Road, Havelock North. A garden centre was built and opened to the public in Spring of the same year. If you are one of our fantastic customers in the Hawkes Bay, you would have noticed all the changes going on in our stores for some time. If you wonder what we are up to in our Havelock North store, we want to clarify that we are not moving or selling the Havelock North garden centre.
We have been growing bedding plants, veggies, potted colour and more at the Havelock North site since we opened there in 1997. We needed more space to grow so we purchased the Napier site in 2011, which gave us extra room for shrubs and flowering perennial production. Oderings’ strategy is to expand in the North and South Islands.
We needed more space to facilitate this extra production, so we sold Napier (now renting there) and purchased in the Gimblett Gravels area, allowing us plenty of room to expand into the future. Over time, we have dismantled the old growing sites at Havelock North and Napier, for further development.
Oderings love the Hawkes Bay and its people. Daniel Hart, a fifth-generation Odering, his wife Brylie (manager of the Havelock North store) and three children have firmly entrenched their lives, friends and schools into the Bay and with 24 years in the area, and intend to be there for a long time to come. Brylie and her team would love you to come and see them at the Havelock North Store, which has also recently under gone an interior refresh; they are knowledgeable and friendly and are there to assist you with anything and everything gardening-related.
Welcome to Oderings’ new, state-of-the-art growing facility.
Daniel has a history entrenched in growing, building, engineering and project management. Just three years ago, this site was a vineyard nestled deep in the sunny Gimblett Gravels, and Daniel, along with his loyal, dedicated team, took on this mammoth project.
Daniel and his team have achieved a lot over these three years; they have 6.5 hectares to play with and have already used close to 5 hectares, allowing us to double our production from what we had at our smaller Havelock North and Napier sites combined. This space has been developed into greenhouses, shade houses, production and soil-making sheds, and outside growing areas. We have even made a 2.5 million litre lake and are collecting rainwater from our greenhouse roofs to try to decrease our water footprint. Production on this site consists of shrubs, bedding plants, potted colour, perennials, herbs and veggies, and we will be looking to add houseplants to our range in the next year.
Oderings and our future look bright in the Hawkes Bay. Daniel and his team believe they have the best growing conditions in New Zealand and that it is a great place to live and bring up your kids, with its great people, beautiful scenery, fabulous weather and fine food and wine.
