FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS - THE CAPE GARDEN CENTRE STORY

The story begins in 1981 on the 15 hectare Van Niekerk Family Farm, Lyons, near Vredendal at the West Coast. Nonna Van Niekerk started cultivating a few Violets and indoor plants in her lounge and a couple of outdoor plants under a (now illegal) loquat tree. The project soon turned into a full scale wholesale nursery involving most of the family. In 1996, the retail Nursery, Cape Garden Centre was opened. Deliveries average around 50tons of plants a week which are transported from Vredendal to Cape Garden Centre. In 2003 the enterprise expanded to Somerset West as a new branch was opened. In addition to growing and selling plants, there are two wholesale pot manufacturing businesses namely Cape Garden Art and Cape Art. The beautiful pots, water features and sculptures manufactured here are available at Cape Garden Centre. Our staff compliment is currently 250 employees who work tirelessly to ensure you have a wonderful experience visiting Cape Garden Centre.
