Blommestein Nursery


Finding ourselves in the richest Succulent specie culture in the world, Blommenstein finds personal growth and pride in the nurturing, care and maturation of these truly South African plants. Of ten thousand Succulent species worldwide, roughly forty-seven percent are indigenous to our beloved country.

With the seed of this larger nursery, planted in 1964, the owners have enriched their knowledge and skill over a span of fifty-six years, while the company itself was established in 1974. Blommenstein grows and supplies Cacti and Succulents, harvesting only their finest skills in the production, growth, love and development of each plant.

Boasting a plantation meterage of thirty thousand square meters, the nursery provides plants on a large and small scale, offering pots of five-and-a-half centimetres, to thirty centimetres. These versatile packages make Blommenstein one of the largest Cacti and Succulent producers in South-Africa.

Back to our roots

Fifty six years ago, a young Willie van der Westhuizen was blessed with a birthday gift of a couple of Succulent plants, by his uncle, Faan Maritz. The gift, seemingly innocent, held a secret that grew into a Nursery, abundant in different sizes, shapes and species of Cacti and Succulents. Sprouting from the gift, was a passion for these unique plants, immune to drought and indivisible from heat and sun, shaping the future of generations to come. Alongside his father, Lukas van der Westhuizen; they collected and grew Cacti and Succulents as a hobby, which during 1974, bloomed into the thriving business that is Blommenstein.
