See below what people are saying about Blueskin Nurseries.

"The best Garden Centre we have ever visited in NZ. Will get back to you sometime soon, thanks again for your excellent service and friendly advice."

Dennis Buckhart, Blenhiem

"I always call in here for a coffee and a lite meal. They do it right. It’s a cafe but it’s more. Indoors or outdoor seating – attached to the winning garden nursery. It is great on a sunny Dunedin day. Burgers are always good and hearty. My favourite cafe. It’s hard not to walk away with a plant for the garden as well."

John R.

"Many thanks for making my visit yesterday to your fine nursery - and cafe - such a pleasure, and for taking such trouble to find me the very best plants. My new garden gets off to a flying start. In appreciation."

Elizabeth Whitcombe

"We dropped in to Blue Skin nursery on our way from Geraldine, the perfect stop off before getting to Dunedin. The service greeted us with a smile and the chef whipped us up some awesome food. I had the sausage roll, it was amazing! I would definitly reccommend a stop here, i am a keen gardner and I will most certainly be returning for the scrummy food and to get some goodies for my garden (maybe even a pair of flowery gumboots i had my eye on!)
