Bernie's Barrow  Stand 36
PO Box 30894, Lower Hutt, 5040
Ph 04 566 2361


Last year, while enjoying a coffee at a Garden Centre Cafe, I observed staff struggling to move a large potted tree. I visited Nurseries and saw the same struggles which got me thinking. Using the awesome large wheels from Bernie’s Barrow, The Ultimate Extra Large Wheel Barrow, I created a prototype Large Pot and Plant Mover which I showed here in 2019.  In 2020, I have revised the prototype design, taking on board feedback from interested parties; now formally launching Bernie’s Pot and Plant Mover. 


Visit me on Stand 36 to view and try out this new product. The first six off the production line are here for purchase. Delight your staff and stop the big pot and plant moving struggle. 


Also come and check out our Extra Large Wheelbarrow with Drawbar, Flat Deck Tray and Caddy optional accessories.
