orchards, depots and worksites.

The Jacson Cube™ (pictured below right) is a compact, portable, all-in-one footwear biosecurity system perfect for

Cleaned and disinfected footwear is an important and highly visible first step that sets the tone
for biosecurity at the business, farm or orchard gate. And it must be done properly.
By themselves, a slosh through a footbath or swish with a brush won’t protect our land-based industries.

Whether you’re a rural professional, contractor, farmer, orchardist or horticulturalist, Jacson3 has a
solution for the footwear component of your biosecurity plan to help you manage your risks.

 Joy Plants Nursery  Stand 68
78 Jericho Road, RD 2, Pukekohe
Ph 09 238 9129

Exciting new Bergenias from Joy Plants

Come to our stand at Trade Day and be among the very first to see our
Bergenia cordifolia Joy Bell hybrids, the exciting new range of Bergenia we have bred from two
very old white-flowering hybrids that have been in New Zealand for probably up to 100 years.

After two years of trialling at our nursery the new seedlings bred from these oldies are performing
very well, with good strong flowers and seem to be better than their parents for flower size and form
of plant – and a breakthrough difference with the traditional English-bred Bressingham varieties is
that they are performing well in Auckland’s humid conditions.

Bergenia perennials are a good choice for planting in semi-shady areas as they maintain their leafy
greenery throughout the year (to about 20cm high), flowering on spikes to
35cm high in late Winter and Spring.

We’ll be showing off the first of these plants at Trade Day and taking orders for 2019.
Laos, come and view our selection of other liners and larger grades of natives and perennials and talk
about what’s coming on this spring season.

Or maybe you are just wanting some ideas or advice about what would best suit your customers.
We will take pre orders for contracts that may be needed for 2019 -- give us your wish list
and we will see what we can do

Calling all nurseries or commercial growers of all kinds . . .

Isn't it time you considered swapping from harmful chemical insecticides to a trusted
and effective natural alternative? Naturally the answer.

What makes Naturally Neem different to other neem products is that it does not
contain raw neem oil but rather the active ingredient 'Azadirachtin indica' 10,000ppm,
as a highly concentrated soluble emulsion.

It is a
registered commercial insecticide which has no withholding period and is
safe to use on all food crops. Users can safely harvest crops in just four hours.

ally Neem is a broad spectrum insecticide that targets all insects.

Available in 200ml bottles, which are perfect for the home gardener, and in commercial
antities of 1 litre, 4 litre and 10 litre containers. 100ml makes up to 100 litres of spray.

Supreme Plastics Ltd  Stand 11
31 princes St, Onehunga, Auckland
Ph 09 636 0949

If you’re looking at re-cladding or upgrading your greenhouses or glasshouses, or even just
needing to replace some panels, then a visit to the Supreme Plastics
stand at Trade Day is a must.

Supreme are the people who supply specialised thermal sheeting for use on home and
commercial hothouses, tunnel houses, even growing boxes, and they will be offering
special pricing for their products on their first appearance at Trade Day – an ideal
opportunity for do-it-yourselfers as well as professional constructors to get great deals.

Call in to update yourself on what is available should you need it in future.


While based in Auckland, Supreme operates throughout New Zealand, much of their
product going through two major greenhouse builders, one in the North and one in the
South Island, although they say ‘no job is too big or too small.’

They specialise in a variety of polycarbonate and fibreglass products including corrugated
and Greca profile polycarbonate sheeting in lengths up to 7.2m. These represent good value
for money and come in clear to maximise the amount of light and heat to diffused or opal
for plenty of light but a reduction of heat.

Where long lengths of up to 31m are required, then The Greenhouse Topglass GC
fibreglass is a strong and durable option.

For growers wanting to extend their growing season the Twinwall clear 6mm or 8mm
sheeting is the answer. The thin rectangular wall tunnel structure makes this an excellent
sheet for vertical and curved jobs and the multi-wall construction
traps air between the layers, which ensures outstanding thermal insulation.
