St. Omer Farm - Wholesale nursery

We, Bill, Judi and Angus, have been in the nursery business since 1988. We were originally involved in a family partnership. Our very successful wholesale nursery specialised in seedlings. In 2000 we sold our shares and purchased St Omer Farm. A restraint of trade was a condition of the sale. We were unable to grow or sell any seedlings in seed trays for 3 years.St Omer Farm at that time, consisted of a main house with garages, 2 labourers’ cottages, guava and fig orchards and a sad looking vineyard. Due to the restraint of trade, we had to explore other avenues of plant production. We wished to remain in the nursery business. We began by erecting tunnels and other infrastructure and after market research, we began our herb production which we sold in our distinctive blue pots. We merchandised our product in the nurseries, which were displayed in our own stands. We also produced essential oil plugs for farmers.

After the restraint of trade period ended, we were able to continue as we still do today, producing a wide range of plants, including vegetable, annual and perennial colour seedlings. We have added another house to the farm, where Angus and his family lived, an office, a coffee shop, many more tunnels and shade nets. We produced our own olive trees and planted them in 2 olive groves. We use and sell our own olive oil and bottle our own olives. Our wholesale section supplies most of the nurseries in Cape Town and environs, going as far as Robertson, Worcester and Hermanus. Our retail section is very popular with locals and others from furtherafield. We offer personalised attention and are able to offer advice on fertilization and pest control using human friendly products. Our customers may enjoy a cup of coffee, piece of cake or light meal in our Garden Room Coffee Shop. They are welcome to sit in the garden or the outside lapa and enjoy the peace and quiet, sitting in a beautiful tranquil place.

Wholesale Herb Growers

We, as a family, have a love of our environment, plants and food. It is such a pleasure for us, to have in our nursery, such a selection of wonderful herbs, enabling us to cook varied, healthy and tasty meals. We enjoy sharing our knowledge, which encompasses all aspects of growing, with our customers. During busy times we have a Cut and Cook range which is very popular especially as we provide a recipe on the herb’s label. As an added service, we are only too pleased to help with the planning of herb and vegetable gardens. Also, for plantings in pots and window boxes, grouping the plants for specific food types: e.g. for Asian foods, for stir fries, for salads, for stews soups and casseroles. We also recommend planting vegetables and herbs in amongst the flower beds.

Wholesale Plant Nursery

Our plants are grown from seed and/or cuttings. Once they have reached a viable stage in their growth they are hardened off. We have a responsibility to our customers to provide a plant that is strong enough to be able to survive and flourish in a garden environment. We merchandise our herb and vegetable plants in the retail nurseries, taking away any that are no longer looking appetising and replacing them. We rotate all our plants, on a regular basis in our retail section on the farm. A food stuff must always look at its best and this is what we strive for. The freshest most cared for plants are always available from the grower.
