Cacti and Succulents
Thrillers, Fillers, and Spillers
Succulents come in many unusual shapes, forms and interesting colours. Cacti and succulents make stunning displays for your houseplant collection. Larger species are used as outstanding landscaping plants for rock gardens or may be grown in large containers. Succulents store water in their thick fleshy leaves and stems and therefore require only modest amounts of water and fertilizer. They do need abundant light. Most species are slow growing and with the right care will thrive for years. They make exciting and unique gifts for any occasion from housewarmings to birthdays
We now stock an exciting range of plant seeds. Our fresh, quality seed will give your sowing the best possible chance of success.
We ship all over Zambia!
