Due to the lock down conditions around the world and here in South Africa, our postage service has been interrupted.

Local Orders:

We are now in Level 3 Lockdown - we can post local orders via SA Post Office & via Postnet, either from Postnet to Postnet or from Postnet to your door.

International Orders:

Posting systems for international orders are once again functioning. Orders placed after the 27 Mar 2020 were finally collected by the couriers on Friday 05 June 2020.

Provided your countries are receiving orders, you should, under normal circumstances, receive your order within 5-6 weeks. There are, however, delays happening currently, probably due to Covid 19 protocols, and many orders are taking 9-10 weeks to arrive. We thank you for your patience.

We hope you and your families are safe and healthy where ever you are in the world.

About Us

Julie Oertel

My love of fynbos and proteas started when I attended the Kirstenbosch Garden Sale to buy plants for our garden in Hout Bay.  It was then that I recognized the protea seedlings growing wild in our garden for what they were. 

Since then I have given up my profession as a pharmacist in order to sell protea seeds to fynbos and exotic plant enthusiasts around the world.  When I am not packing protea starter packs or fulfilling seed orders, I love to garden.  I am growing various proteas from seed in pots, and our front garden is all indigenous fynbos.

I have recently taken up painting (oil and watercolour) and love painting pictures of fynbos flowers. Expect some of my work to appear on this site in due course.
