Gardening has been a constant thread in Leoné’s life. Her grandmother collected aloes and grew gloxinias and her mother was a compulsive plant collector. In 1995 she decided to turn her passion into her livelihood and today Petal Faire Nursery is a well-known destination for gardeners and plant collectors looking for rare or hard to find exotic and indigenous plants. Many of the plants in the nursery are also featured around Petal Faire Cottage so that they can be enjoyed in a garden setting.
If you are a keen gardener, do take some time during your stay to stroll through the nursery or visit www.petalfaire.co.za to see what is on offer.
