Specialized Seedlings, Small to large scale agricultural farms and agricultural development projects

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

Specialized seedlings purchases commercial seed from only the top international seed companies, which guarantees perfect seed quality. We purchase the seed, check the germination, sow the seed and grow out the seedlings until a suitable transplant size is achieved. A young but "hardy" seedling is best suited to the harsh African climate.

As a wholesale nursery, to justify the transport and logistics into the North West and Gauteng areas a minimum order of 30,000 seedlings would need to be placed. Smaller orders of less than 30,000 seedlings can be arranged by placing a signed order in advance and collected from the nursery. Most farmers pre-plan a year round program so as to assure their weekly or fortnightly transplanting schedule arrives according to plan.

Smaller batches or orders for farmers of less than 30,000 seedlings can be organised or collectioned on an ad hoc basis, provided prior notice is given.

Housewives and keen gardeners will enjoy our mixed herb and lettuce trays. Please phone ahead to check the availability of these mixed trays.

During the 'in seasonal' tomatoes, sweet peppers, basil and chillies are available on an order or on an ad hoc basis. The "out of season" or non-frost free vegetables will need to be pre-programmed.

All seedlings sown are marked with a trace code or lot number. These numbers are used to trace the seedlings heritage. It is possible to trace a seedling to the date it was sown which fertilizers or presticides were used on them, when and where, its germination percentage and when it was due for collection. Lot numbers can furthermore be used to trace the seeds age and country of origin. In terms of international standards any lettuce, cabbage or tomato crop must be able to be traced back from its grave to its cradle.

Below is a basic price list of the vegetable and herb seedlings we produce as seen below. Please take note many are seasonal varieties such as tomato and peppers vary between open field, net and greenhouse protection.

Weekly extra's and extra seedlings:
Often the nursery has "extra" seedlings which are grown over and above the agreed seedlings programs to make sure the farmers are never short of their program or orders.
