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.

Bird of Paradise Single Pack

An attractive, easy to post envelope-sized package, containing everything you need to grow indigenous South African Strelitzia from seed.  It makes an ideal gift.  The package is adorned with attractive photos of the flowers and covered in a self sealing cellophane sleeve.

This is one of the most striking and well recognised rhizomatous shrubs in South Africa. It grows to a height of 1.5m, with large basal leaves forming clumps which are attractive in their own right.

The tufted growth gradually multiplies and can be divided during spring and summer. The flowers are a dramatic blue and orange and have a distinctive shape resembling the head of a bird- hence the name 'Bird of Paradise'.

They flower from summer to autumn. They are striking feature plants and very popular with landscapers. They grow in full sun or semi shade are wind tolerant, doing well in coastal gardens.

They are beautiful as cut flowers and last well.

To help you get started, the pack contains 5 seeds, detailed growing instructions and Cape Seed smoke primer to enhance the germination process. The strelitzia is suitable for low-frost climates.
