Peter Cave has been a nurseryman for over 40 years. Coming from a keen gardening family in Wanganui, Peter graduated Bachelor of Horticultural Science with Honours from Massey University. Experience was gained working at the huge Monrovia Nursery in Los Angeles, Lyndale Nursery in Auckland, running the Wanganui City Council Nursery, before opening Cave’s Tree Nursery near Hamilton in 1977.
Moving to Raglan in 2011 indulged Peter’s love of natives to develop fresh native forest on 60 acres of redundant farmland. Full circle has come again with the opening of Peter Cave Nursery, specialist growers of the rare and unusual. His partner Annetta loves plants too, and provides much needed support in the nursery.
