Witkoppen Wildflower Nursery
Celebrating 60 Years of Growing and Supplying Quality Indigenous Plants in 2019
Welcome to the home page of South Africa’s oldest and best known indigenous plants nursery.
We are your natural choice for quality indigenous plants.
We offer a large choice of plants that are indigenous to southern Africa. You can expect friendly service and knowledgeable staff. We only use environmentally friendly and sustainable methods to propogate, grow and look after all our indigenous plants.
We are selling worm farms, earthworms and worm castings for WormFarms.co.za.
We are doing this as a service to both our clients and to WormFarms.co.za and so we are not marking up their prices on the worms or the farms at all. We therefore ask you to please either pay by cash or make an arrangement for payment with the nursery.
