A Passion for Plants

our vision at horti.co.za

Our Vision

To have a trusted marketplace for finding rare, unusual (and common) plants either in your neighbourhood or throughout South Africa.

There is a huge variety of amazing plants, growers and independent nurseries – and we want to promote them.

The human touch.

It’s important to be in touch with nature – with our plants and with humans, and this marketplace aims to keep this connection. Customers can communicate direct with growers throughout the transaction, and afterwards too.

We aspire to keep the human connection at the heart of commerce.

Our platform connects growers with thousands of buyers looking for plants in stock.

seeds - from simple beginnings

From Simple Beginnings

From being in website consultancy in the corporate world and being passionate about what South Africa has to offer in the plant kingdom… we saw a need to help specialist nurseries get online and promote themselves.

We help our community of growers and nurseries to sell and showcase their plants.

shop securely

Shop Securely

Security and trust.
horti.co.za provides the technology behind the shop.horti.co.za marketplace helping buyers and sellers connect. Keeping that safe and fun and secure is a priority and we’re always here to help.

To summarise:

shop.horti.co.za is an online market place where people can buy and sell plants. Any specialist nursery from South Africa can apply to become a vendor, which gives them access to a online store front to sell their plants and plant related goods.

South Africa has many special plants! And plantspeople. Our task is to create a vibrant trading atmosphere.

We want to help the people developing and selling plants and plant based products and encourage them to use our platform to supply you, the public, the landscaper, the collector, or the estate garden.

With no upfront fees, no monthly charges, no strings attached, AND with powerful tools, support and training, we help nurseries and growers start their online presence and manage it.

I love the idea of living a plant based life and admire all the people who contribute to making plant based living a reality. I know that for this to happen we need a diverse marketplace to find the plants and products we want to buy.

We love businesses who also share our values: ethical and fair, excellent customer service, proven healthy plants, promote diversity and who are passionate about their plants.

We are based in Stellenbosch, near Cape Town, South Africa, but our vendors are located throughout the country, and many will ship internationally.

Like our plants, we love to be talked to, so please get in touch if you have feedback, questions or something we can help with.

Happy horticulture,
Fiona and the team at horti.co.za.
