Can I purchase directly from Van Lier Nurseries?
As we are B2B company, we only sell our cut flowers directly to florists, flower wholesalers and other related businesses.
Do you have any products that are available for the public to purchase?
Yes. We sell Zanzibar Gem potted plants.
Can I buy a plant for my garden from Van Lier Nurseries?
Unfortunately, no. Due to contracts and royalties, the sale of our plants are strictly limited to New Zealand Commercial Cut Flower Growers. Under no circumstances are we able to sell these items individually, or in bulk, to those who do not fit the above category.

Is there a cut off time for placing my order?
While we always try our very best to fill all orders we receive, it can be more difficult to fulfill orders sent to us at the last minute. We ask that all Auckland orders are in by 10AM for same day delivery & out of Auckland orders to be in by 12.30PM the day of dispatch.
How far in advance should I place my order?
There is no limit to how far in advance you can place your order.* We work on a first come - first serve basis so the earlier the better. We recommend especially with wedding orders, that you place your order through as soon as everything is confirmed with your customer. If you are wanting David Austin Roses, we also recommend that you place your order in as soon as possible as these are in extremely high demand.
*not applicable during special events (Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and Christmas)
What is a Standing Order and how do I start one?
A Standing Order is a hassle-free, automatic weekly shipment of the products you want. If you want to know more about starting a standing order (as well as the benefits of being a Standing Order customer), please email us.
Is there a minimum spend amount?
No, there is no minimum spend amount. While it is preferred that all orders are over the value of $100, we know that on occasion this isn't always achievable.
What payment options does Van Lier offer?
All accounts with us are required to be set up to direct debit, which runs on a 7-day payment process.
