Proteas

The proteas are the heart and history of the farm. They are the bread and butter that has kept the flower farm a thriving business for over 20 years. The older plants are lovingly being replaced with a new wider variety of proteas. 

In the flower world proteas are the new roses. With their striking colour and size they make beautiful centre pieces to rustic wedding bouquets.
