March 2021 picture portfolio

We have introduced a new feature to our website. At the start of each month we will publish a selection of photographs of plants, animals and life here at Witkoppen Wildflower Nursery and Lesokeng during the previous month. So this month’s portfolio is a selection of the pictures taken during March. We do hope you will enjoy them and please let us have feedback as to what you think of the choice of subjects.

Click on the heading above, or on the picture on the right, to go to the new portfolio.

Welcome to the Witkoppen Wildflower Team, Chelsea!

 

We are pleased to welcome Chelsea Bloem to our team.

As a child Chelsea lived in Knysna and spent a lot of her free time in the forests, where her intrest in plants first started.

Chelsea has a talent for drawing and designing,  that lead her to do a Landscape Design course. While doing the course, Chelsea realized that she has a pasion for plants, in particular in propogating and growing them.  Chelsea approached us to provide her with an oppertunity to become a trainee nurserywoman. She says she is excited to be given this oppertunity, as we are to have her on the team. at Witkoppen Wildflower Nursery. Here is to a long and fruitful future together.

One of her goals is to one day own and run her own nursery offering quality organicaly grown plants.
