Adventures in South Africa

As long as we have been growing, collecting and selling succulent plants, we have longed to witness first hand the habitat where they originate.

For more than a year we have planned our adventure and we intend to see as much as we can in the three short weeks we've given ourselves.

We'll begin in the south in Cape Town and after visiting the fabulous gardens and parks in that area, move north into Namaqualand. We will see the exotic plants that grow wild in this beautiful country both in the formal National Botanic Garden system of SA as well as in the countryside.

It's spring in South Africa, so we look forward to seeing the fabulous display of colorul bulbs and annuals that cover the landscape throughout the western part of the country at this time of year.

Please join us in this pictoral account of our exciting plant safari.
