A plant nursery has been on the site for nearly a hundred years. In the old days the nursery was part of a working farm, and covered some 60 hectares. And for many years, Paarl Nursery was widely acknowledged as the premier Western Cape Plant Nursery, notably sending roses and fruit trees throughout the country.
Just over a year ago, the Nursery was bought by new owners intent on restoring the Nursery to its former glory. Significant restorative work at the nursery has already been undertaken.
On the one hand the physical premises, here the herculean task of reclaiming all the plant beds and the landscaping of recreational areas is well underway.
The intention is to provide attractive play areas for children and pleasant shaded sitting and picnic areas and the retail area and coffee shop are being refurbished.oin sagittis.
