Still many awesome ornamental succulent plants for SALE

Herman van Bon Photography

Despite excellent sales during the past two Sundays we still have a few hundred plants for sale; partly in pots and partly directly from the garden. Amongst these plants are still some collector’s items. Prices are realistic (mentioned in captions and in South African Rand); we don’t deal in bargains. What we don’t sell goes with us to the new address (where-ever that may be 😉 ). This coming Sunday 31 January another sale. Buyers/collectors have to book in advance (greenc -at- omail.co.za) for we work with a time slot of 2 – 2.5 hrs pp.

Besides what’s shown in the pictures there are still many smaller and larger (>2 m high) cacti, agaves and other (mainly African) succulent plants.
