Our mission is to make you as enthusiastic about our indigenous flora as we are!
We do this by making quality indigenous plants more readily available so that it can contribute to a sustainable future and through appreciation of our flora, promote biodiversity.
About the Owners
The owners are Dr. Johan Wentzel, and his wife Annette. Both have been dedicated on a full time basis to the nursery since its inception
Even as a student in geology and physics in the early seventies, Johan was interested in our indigenous plants and how to propagate them.
This life long passion was converted into a nursery in 2004. Wildflower Wholesale Nursery is situated next to the Hartbeespoort Dam and specializes in plants from the Grassland Biome of South Africa.
Plants are also selected for their importance from a biodiversity aspect. (Not all plants occurring in the Grasslands are suitable for propagation – e.g. some grow extremely slowly and others are very site specific). Most of the plants were grown from seed collected in the wild.
Currently the nursery stocks approximately 120,000 indigenous plants of 600 different species from the Grassland Biome as well as some others that do well in this environment.
