simply incomparable in our selection of some of the finest summer and winter rainfall South African Bulbs
Our Retail Nursery reopens for Spring/Summer on Saturday 20 August 2016 : 8.30am to 5pm. Please note that we will no longer be open on Sundays and please phone first if you would like to visit us during the week.
Refer to our Facebook page THE SA BULB COMPANY where we are posting regular updates and photos until our new website finally goes live.
* Our beautiful new website for THE SA BULB COMPANY will be up and running soon. This will also mark the end of Simply Indigenous and this website for us. We have come a long way with Simply Indigenous Hartbeespoortdam, almost 2 decades but the time has now come for our new business THE SA BULB COMPANY. When you visit our nursery, you will see the new boards outside the farm gate. We will be closing the retail outlet here at Hartbeespoortdam at some stage in 2016 as we are set to move once the farm is sold. So to all our old customers and new customers, use this last opportunity this spring and summer, to visit our retail outlet and see firsthand, the incredible variety of bulbs and daylilies that we grow. In the future, we will only be selling our bulbs and daylilies to international retail and wholesale customers via export and in South Africa via mail order and possibly at select garden shows.

Our mission statement:
- To promote a diverse range of quality, South African bulbs to the international market
- To promote South African plants locally as a first choice, not just for their suitability but because they are unique and beautiful plants in their own right
- To expand the propagation of rare and threatened species
Simply Indigenous Nursery is a multiple award winning specialist grower, exporter and retailer situated on the south west corner of Hartbeespoortdam in North West Province, South Africa.
Indigenous bulbs with beautiful and interesting leaves are one of our specialities, some of which are featured in the accompanying photos and in other pages on this website.
We have incorporated our new specialist bulb & daylily nursery The SA Bulb Company into this website for the interim.
The SA Bulb Company offers:
• indigenous and select exotic bulbs for the wholesale and retail markets both locally and abroad
• occasionally we are able to offer seed of bulbs and geraniaceae for export
• propagation of Geraniaceae for local and overseas collectors
• select daylily cultivars & irises available to local retail and wholesale customers
Please note that we do not always have stock available of all the species displayed in our photo galleries on this website. The photographs serve to showcase the diversity of South African bulbs and the varieties we are growing. Stock levels vary particularly with regard to the very special rare and unusual which are seldom available in large quantities. We welcome new customers from across the globe and thank all our customers who continue to support us. We hope to have our new website fully operational by mid-year!
News flashes announcing Sales, specials & New arrivals/First Offerings particularly for local retail and local wholesale sales are highlighted on the appropriate pages!
I hope to resume our newsletter, The Discerning Gardener again, very soon as the demand for it is huge! The emphasis will be on Bulbs in particular and how to incorporate them into formal gardens, wild gardens, townhouse gardens and of course containers and we do hope that this will significantly contribute towards a better understanding of bulbous plants and why they are so special as well as being a very useful guide to our customers, gardeners in general and landscapers who might have been a little unsure on how to use bulbs successfully in their projects). The newsletter will also include many articles on Daylilies & Irises.
