Labyrinth Nursery is located in North Riding AH in the Northern Suburbs (Randburg area) of Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa. We are waterwise specialists with the aim of sharing these magical succulent plants / vetplante with Southern Africa and the entire world (eventually!)
The story of the Eddie Tshisimba Labyrinth is a long and winding one, but in essence this Labyrinth represents our struggle in building this nursery and is dedicated to Eddie Tshisimba (our Site Manager who died in a car accident with his mother and 1yr old son on 24 Dec 2012.)
On the nursery side of things, Labyrinth Nursery specializes in hardy succulents and we pride ourselves on our extensive range of beautifully shaped and coloured succulents to give your garden that something special… we also sell other hardy perennial landscaping plants and trees… basically we sell the kinds of plants that stand the test of time and just keep multiplying and filling space over time!
Why we specialize in waterwise plants
Labyrinth Nursery specializes in hardy waterwise plants / vetplante / succulents and we pride ourselves on our extensive range of beautifully shaped and coloured succulents to give your garden that something special.
But, the reason may be a funny one to those who care to listen, our nursery possibly grew too quickly, we amassed around 100,000 plants in a very short space of time (with our 30 staff), so quickly in fact, that we had to retrench most of our staff before we were even open to the public!
So, with alot less staff, and the fact that in the first couple years we used to water by hand (because our irrigation wasn’t installed yet), some less hardy plants started to diminish (or even wither away!)
Over time, you can imagine with the harsh highveld climate, that we would suffer even more losses. This was very evident when we finally got to installing our irrigation and plants were piled up on top of each other while the trenches were being dug and the pipes and sprayers installed!
After all of this, only the toughest most drought tolerant, most waterwise, most hardcore plants survived all of this. And, due to cash-flow issues, and practicality, we only ever bought stock of succulents and other hardy indigenous plants! We needed to make sure that whatever stock we bought, would survive our issues with water, power (for the borehole) and possibly forgetfulness 🙂 … hence Labyrinth Nursery – Johannesburg’s Succulent Specialists!
