Bruntwood Nurseries History

Bruntwood Nurseries was established in 1977 by Dave and Shirley Ogilvy, just outside Cambridge. Hedging and shelter lines for the Kiwifruit industry and ornamental lines for the wholesale market was grown.

The wholesale production nursery moved to its present site on the outskirts of Hamilton in 1983. Initially a bare 10 acre block, Bruntwood Nurseries is now firmly established and highly respected throughout New Zealand.

Dave grew up next to an uncle who had an orchid nursery and has been interested in plants from a young age. At 12, he worked at Keats Nurseries after school, before joining the panel beating and spray painting trade after taking his dad’s advice to “learn a proper trade”.

Dave’s love for plants and the desire to open his own nursery eventually won and in 1977 Bruntwood Nurseries was founded.

Shirley married into the industry and does an excellent job managing the Bruntwood office. Shirley and Dave have long-standing involvement with IPPS (International Plant Propagators Society) where both have been presented with Awards of Recognition for their tireless service to the IPPS New Zealand region.

Dave has been a member of IPPS for 30 years and Shirley has been their voluntary treasurer for over 20 years. For her dedication, Shirley has been recognised with an Award of Merit.

Bruntwood proudly supports Paper4Trees, an environmental education programme run by EERST (Environmental Education for Resource Sustainability Trust), encouraging schools and preschools to reduce the amount of paper and cardboard waste they send to landfill.

Local schools belong to Paper for Trees and with their efforts recycling paper, they buy native plants to grown in their school. Bruntwood Nurseries supplies and freely delivers native plants to the schools on Arbor Day.
