Some Background on the Flower Calendar

Heilfontein (“Holy Fountain”) is a 50Ha flower farm situated about 23km from Caledon at the top end of the Hemel & Aarde Valley and about 3 km from the rural settlement of Tesselaarsdal.  We have cultivated Fynbos under drip irrigation from the Elandskloof River and about 30Ha of natural mountain and riverine Fynbos.  We have permits to pick and sell both cultivated and natural varieties of Fynbos.  This we endeavor to do within the Sustainable Harvesting Guidelines.

We are not large commercial suppliers but because we have a wide variety of species, we normally have flowers available throughout the year.  We recently acquired the property of Mr Adriaan Hanekom who operated the Caledon Fynbos Nursery for many years and this means that we also have some eye-catching species available in small quantities – ideal for the special occasion. 

We hope that you find this Fynbos Calendar useful for your planning.  However, because of the vagaries of nature and climate change, it can unfortunately only be used as a guideline.  As there are so many varieties available, we have only included photos and availabilities of some of the species. Give us a call and we will let you know what else is available at the time. 

Although we normally supply to wholesalers, we do also supply florists direct when they are doing wedding arrangements with a Fynbos theme.  (We can also suggest a local flower arranger).  As we are a bulk supplier from the farm, we have a minimum order of R1 000 excl VAT and there may be an extra charge for delivery.  Please email us to request a price list, as prices are subject to change due to climate, demand and supply.

Finally, Heilfontein is in a beautiful location, so we also offer self-catering farm stay accommodation in our luxury Lodge or rustic Log Cabin.  Come and visit us and relax in the country or use the hiking and MTB trails.  You may even want to get married at one of the lovely wedding venues nearby!
