Welcome to Hortus Capensis

Situated in the Western Cape, South Africa, we are propagators and growers of bamboo plants.

Plants are derived from superior clones via tissue culture and hardened in our fully climate controlled glasshouse
Regulated underfloor heating ensures optimal & uniform root development
We supply ornamentals locally and commercial species throughout Africa

At their destination clients grow the hardened plants on, under shade cloth until ready for field planting
Our superior clones produce uniform quality plants, ideal for commercial plantations
