What we do
EMERDEN is a small flower farm and florist located in Stratford, Taranaki, New Zealand. We grow a wide range of seasonal flowers, mostly annuals, along with a few spring bulbs, dahlias and garden roses mixed in for good measure.
As a florist growing our own flowers we offer all the extra special flowers that aren't often available as cut flowers. From the heavenly scented sweet peas in spring, to the wispy wild cosmos in summer, we're completely obsessed with sourcing the most interesting and luscious varieties to grow. Our flowers and floral designs are true celebrations of the season and the special fleeting moments.
Throughout our main growing season October to March, our flowers and seasonal bouquets can be purchased directly on our website for delivery throughout most of central + northern Taranaki. Our flowers + bouquets can also be found at Billow Bakery in New Plymouth on weekends, and fortnightly on Sundays at The Seaside Market. We have also started selling our flowers direct to other local florists (you can request to create a florist account here).
EMERDEN is currently for the most part just a one woman hustle, with myself—Sarah Hawkless—being head dreamer, compost shoveller and everything else inbetween.
