Texture Plants

Texture Plants was started in 1994 by Christchurch brothers, Tim and Hamish Prebble. The two brothers who were then working within the industry identified that there was room in Christchurch for a niche Garden Centre, focusing on plants with foliage, form and structure as this is the backbone to good garden design. The brothers` focus was to establish Texture Plants Nursery which could provide quality native, exotic and evergreen trees and shrubs which are vital in establishing a low maintenance garden with style. Texture Plants is more than just a Nursery. We also provide Landscape Consultations whereby we can see your complete project through from concept to completion with all the personal care and attention you and your garden deserve.

The brothers' focus was to establish Texture Plants Nursery which could provide quality native, exotic and evergreen trees and shrubs which are vital in establishing a low maintenance garden with style.

From small beginnings back in 1994, Texture Plants has progressively grown to become a market leader not only in Christchurch but throughout New Zealand.  As self-confessed 'plantaholics', we are constantly introducing and trialling new varieties to establish their suitability and maintenance requirements.  The constant growth of  Texture Plants along with our customers' great hunger for new and exciting plants has seen both Hamish and Tim travel to the four corners of the world in search of seed and plant material to satisfy the needs of like-minded 'plantaholics'.  Looking around Texture Plants unique Nursery you can see the fruits of their labour everywhere from the strange hairy beasts from the Sub Antarctic Islands to the hyperdermic needle-like plants from Mexico and Africa. All this strange yet exciting flora is blended with our own unique New Zealand natives to form a Nursery which really has to be visited to be believed!

The Texture Plants philosophy is really quite simple - to discover, grow and introduce high quality trees and shrubs with interesting form and structure which are easy to maintain.  Coupled with this, we provide a fantastic plantscaping service, drawing on our many years of combined experience.
