Patio plants was established in January 2006 by Elvira and Jan Bronger.

We are in the Krugersdorp area on a plot just off Venter Road. (contact details)

Our nursery is 2.2 ha (22.000 sq. meters) all under cover and all greenhouses have a decent heating system.

There is also 5.000 sq. meters shade nets for

hardening certain varieties.

And another 5.000 sq. meter is on thedrawing board, double function shade- greenhouse. (pic to follow shortly)

At Patio Plants we realised that the need for water is critical to growing our plants. So to minimise the effect on the farm we Custom build two dams to service the farm. Both dams are mainly sourced by rain water that we collect off our tunnels.

We gained our growing experience in

different countries around the world;

  • The Netherlands
  • Italy
  • Kenya
  • Uganda
  • Indonesia
  • Malaysia
  • South Africa

. We mostly produced chrysanthemum cuttings for the Dutch


Our soil is very special to us. We use a mixture of local bark and imported Coco Peat,with slow release fertiliser and a wetting agent.
