About us

Located on the main intersection of highway 29A on the Welcome Bay and Ohauiti Rd roundabout,  Palmers Garden Centre is a perfect location for all your garden, houseplant and giftware needs. 

Palmers Welcome Bay has recently changed ownership and is now owned by Brandon and Christo. 

Bringing a smile, enthusiasm and their gorgeous Weimaraner Emmett, this dynamic duo are ready to breathe new life in to the Palmers Welcome Bay store.

These two are no strangers to rolling their sleeves up and getting stuck in. Having had illustrious careers in retail management and finance, Brandon and Christo are more than ready to face this new challenge.

The store has been restocked and now delivers inspirational garden and lifestyle displays to satisfy the most discerning of shoppers. Our decor and gift store is ever changing and has developed a strong following with locals as a store of choice.

Brandon and Christo have met so many wonderful Welcome Bay customers already. More and more are coming in each day to say hi, which they absolutely love! If you haven’t popped in recently, make sure you do, they can’t wait to be on a first name basis with their customers. The expert team are ready to assist you with all your gardening queries, and will be delighted to welcome you to their beautiful store.
