Who MeadowSweet Is
Hi! I'm Minette Tonoli, and MeadowSweet Herbs & Flowers is what I do. I'm a community herbalist and horticulturist who loves to inspire others toward soulful gardening for nutritious food and gentle home remedies.
I live my self-sufficient(ish) dream of herbalism, horticulture, and homesteading on my one acre farmlet in beautiful Waikuku, North Canterbury.
I invite you to join me on my journey with these wonderful plants, and take some time to browse through the website to learn more about what I offer on growing and using herbs, and small farm life.
What MeadowSweet Offers
MeadowSweet Herbs & Flowers' offerings are two-fold: a herb plant nursery and a knowledge base.
The Herb Nursery offers home-grown, spray-free food and medicine plants as well as food forest support and companion plants. All the plants on offer are grown by me from either seeds, divisions or cuttings. Hand-harvested seeds from my own gardens are available too.
The Herb Knowledge Base offers Grow and Use Guides based on years of hands-on experience. You can also book me for Talks/Presentations or join one of my Workshops on Herbs.
How MeadowSweet Works
Plant sales run from the start of daylight savings in September each year to the end of daylight savings in April. You can buy plants and seeds online during this time through the shop page, or directly from the nursery which is open by appointment and most Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
I ship plants across all of New Zealand using a courier service - see shipping to see the estimated cost and schedules by region. Currently I do not offer international sales.
Talks/Presentations and Workshops can be booked throughout the year.
