Among them are businesses that produce plants for retailers and home gardeners, landscapers, councils and amenity spaces, environmental restoration, and revegetation, orchards, vineyards, vegetable and other food producers, and forestry.

A stocktake is an important part of preparing annual accounts. In production nurseries, this involves assessing plant stock to ascertain balance sheet trading stock value. Most plant producers will be able to user the Discounting Selling Price method for valuing nursery stock. The stock value of a plant is based on a simple formula using the anticipated sale price, the time it takes a crop to reach saleable grade and the stage that the crop is currently at in that period. NZPPI's guidance on the process is available to members.
