Meet the Portstone team


I have been at Portstone since 1992 I enjoy getting to know Portstone's customers and helping them enjoy their gardening experience and advising them on their gardening requirements.

The Portstone team have incredible knowledge and we focus on excellent customer service.

We focus on having products a little different and are proud to stock Dragonstone from England, NZ made Winter Gardenz greenhouses and stock Kings Seeds.


Anything to do with accounts, advertising, newsletters, website and social media, its me. I am also known to help customers at the counter.

Gardeners are decent people, we have a great customer following and having good relationships with those customers is vital.

We have a really passionate team - our working environment is fabulous - how can you not feel good being amongst plants and with the cafe so handy coming to work is easy.


I like working with plants and to be outside, although I have been know for feeling a little cold in winter. So if you see someone out in the bedding area, with 10 jackets, hats and gloves on, don't be afraid, its only me!
My role is looking after the bedding plants, perennials, herbs and roses.  Planting up baskets and creating displays, are two of my favourites.
I enjoy chatting to customers so please come and see me if your have any gardening questions.
