Seedling Systems is the biggest seedling propagation nursery in South Auckland. Every day we work hard, developing perfect products, creating living goodness and delivering real value to our clients. We love a challenge and enjoy helping our growers become leaders in their area of expertise.

Our Team

What's special about our team is their love for the freshness of what every day can bring, with plenty of growers with unique product challenges to capture their intellect, our staff are constantly engaged, interested and well…busy.

The long serving nursery team lead by owner Guy Morgan, have an extensive and diverse range of industry knowledge which has assisted with building quality.

Guy started out with a Horticultural degree 30 years ago growing experience across both cut flower and vegetable production. Specializing in seedling propagation for over 20 years has enabled Guy to satisfy his passion for propagating an even greater range of product. Our management team have almost equally long service in the field and have cultivated an extensive skill base in flower, vegetable, tomato and cucurbit propagation whilst on team.

We work hard to meet growers needs, constantly developing and integrating functional systems to build quality and support product development. We consider our seed providers as team too, as they are often on site trialling new product lines to meet our growers needs.

Our Nursery

We can efficiently and cost effectively house about 10 million plants in the peak summer time...

Our nursery has multiple purpose built glass and plastic production sites including our recent addition of an ebb and flow table production area. This area was added late 2014 and we had a lot of fun with the build. By mid-2015 it was in high production (read more). We are also equipped with an extensive range of precision pneumatic seeding machines. High speed Urbinati and Williames drum machines for large volume vegetable and flower sowing and KW needle machines for raw and smaller lots of seeds. Our staff also have wide knowledge of hand sowing including our own special hen sowing™ method. To handle the volume of seedling product our site is equipped with germination facilities, irrigation and heating systems, washing plant, machinery for transportation of material and products on site and a range of delivery trucks. These along with management systems ensure that we can efficiently and cost effectively house about 10 million plants in the peak summer time to meet the delivery demands of our growers.

Sowing Overflow Service

We offer a sowing overflow service for growers to support their own sowing operations at peak periods. We operate seven days, so can sow on the weekend to meet your needs Monday morning or any day of the week.

Early 2014 we acquired the Urbinati Zeta Compact sowing line. This machine has the capacity to sow all pelleted seed as well as multiple seeds per cell, capacity up to 650 trays per hour. A beautiful machine, from de-stacking and filling trays, precision dibbler, seed drum, vermiculite coverer, water tray to stacking for transportation to the germination rooms, this machine is a joy to watch in action.

We have a range of clients with different needs. See how we can help you.
