Our tree selection includes Mimosa (3’ tall), Leyland’s (3-4’, 4-5’ and 6-7’), and Kousa Dogwood, with more to chose from.

These products are marketed wholesale to local nurseries and garden clubs. We also retail to the general public at farmers markets throughout the Cape.

For spring production, we focus on day-neutral perennials, which typically prefer cool growing conditions. Examples include: ajuga, aquilegia, arabis, aubrieta, bellis, Coreopsis auriculata, dianthus, doronicum, lamium, Papaver nudicaule, Phlox subulata, many types of primula and viola.
