to Samgro!

Where quality and service delivery are cultivated.

Our story

Samgro is a wholesale nursery that exclusively supplies to nurseries, garden centres, retail groups, plant brokers and landscapers.

We serve clients country-wide, as well as internationally, with exports to the UK, Middle East, the Netherlands, Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho and the USA.


Established in 2002, Samgro is rooted in the fertile soils of Wellington in the Western Cape. Initially, we only grew and supplied seedlings – but the business has grown exponentially, and we now also grow herbs and succulents, potted flowers, and even Christmas trees!

3 000 000

Currently, we grow of more than 700 different species that add up to more than 3,000,000 plants annually.

Our goals don’t include “being the biggest wholesale nursery”, but rather “being the wholesale nursery known for outstanding quality and excellent service”.

Our planet

At Samgro, we do everything in our power to minimise our impact on natural resources. We have solar panels installed, that takes care of about 10-20% of the electricity we use, depending on the season. We also recycle all of the plants we discard, and turn them into compost to aid in the growth of new plants.

We have four dams on the property that we use for collecting irrigation water – but our main source of water is the Berg River. We pump water from the river into dams, and then onto a purification process that includes various filters, UV treatments, etc. to make the water more suitable for irrigation purposes.

We are also working together with some of our biggest customers and suppliers to find sustainable, environmentally friendly packaging solutions to minimise the use of single-use plastics.

It’s everyone’s responsibility to look after
our wonderful planet.

Our people

We provide employment to around 60 staff members from local communities. We’re committed to creating a good, fair, reasonable working environment – and our staff can vouch for that. We also employ a number of seasonal workers each year.

Our process

Because we’re a wholesale nursery, we have two pre-determined routes we follow when it comes to growing and supplying.

We grow plants on a contract basis for a number of big clients. Species, seasons, lead times and quantities are discussed in exceptional detail before contracts are signed and the process is started. We have a base of loyal clients with whom we have built wonderful relationships over the years, and we look forward to starting ours with you!

Want to find out more about contract growth, or become a client?

We have a selection of plants we grow as standard. Each month we send a list to our subscribers, to keep them in the loop as to which plants are available, and how many. Clients can then fill in an order form, and we will get back to them with confirmation or further information. Not in South Africa? CLICK HERE to request a quotation.
Please note that we do not offer our own delivery service, but we do work with a reliable courier service that is available at the client’s cost. Clients are also welcome to collect their orders.
