Open 7 days a week, the Random Harvest South African indigenous plant nursery offers about 800 species of plants in the retail and wholesale sections of the nursery. 

Whether it's trees, shrubs, flowering plants, bulbs, grasses, succulents or water plants you require, you are sure to find them here. 

Extensive Professional Expertise

Linda De Luca, owner of Random Harvest Nursery, is as passionate about biodiversity, the environment, and gardening for wildlife as when she started over 26 years ago. This passion and commitment spills over to her staff, who she continuously shares her extensive knowledge of indigenous plants and gardening with.

In line with our commitment to sustainable gardening, we also have a range of herbs (including some indigenous herbs).
