The business is family owned and operated, established by Jaap and Annet van Dorsser in 1987. It specialises in roses but has diversified to include new flowers: Amaryllis and Cybisters.
In 2006, their son Frans joined the business allowing for further growth and has resulted in the upcoming introduction of Cymbidium Orchids.
Shipherd Nurseries has a simple goal to produce high quality product, using the latest most effective growing techniques with years of experience and valuable Dutch growing skills to draw from. The business evolves around many hours of manual work done by dedicated people to supply timeless natural beauty to consumers.
The company is located at 15 Shipherd Road, RD3, Pukekohe.
