Welcome to Carine. More than just a garden centre...

Just outside Tauranga on State Highway 2 in Te Puna, Carine Garden Centre first opened its doors over 20 years ago and has been serving the gardeners of Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty ever since. Opened by John and Leonie Wild and deemed at the time - more than just a garden centre - it has remained a popular part of the community as a New Zealand owned & family operated business. Well known for its landscaping services and supplies, top quality plants and aquatic plants, gardening products, pets and pet supplies and wide range of water features and garden ponds, Carine's friendly and knowledgeable staff are on hand and willing to provide good practical advice on all aspects of garden care.
