Waterwise Plants / Succulents Nursery / Vetplante Kwekery

Labyrinth Nursery is located in North Riding AH in the Northern Suburbs (Randburg area) of Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa. We are succulent 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.)

Walk-Our-Labyrinth / Succulent Gardens!

The Labyrinth is for everyone and anyone who may need help or guidance in their own life, and we encourage everyone to walk-the-labyrinth and be open to God’s guidance in your heart and soul 🙂

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!

OTHER AREAS OF INTEREST IN OUR BUSINESS INCLUDE AGRICULTURAL seeds and fertilizer SUPPLY!

We also sell a wide range of agricultural seeds and fertilizer for farmers, plot owners or even large garden owners… we sell these wholesale to farmers, but most of the seeds and fertilizer that we sell can also be ordered on our online shop (per kg): GardenGoods.co.za!

Our other websites that cover these wholesale seeds and wholesale fertilizers are as follows: BulkSeed.co.za is the wholesale division of our farming seeds (mainly turf / lawn seeds and grasses & legumes for feeding animals) and BulkFertilizer.co.za is the wholesale division of our farming fertilizers (mainly full truck loads / tri-axles / super-links of bagged fertilizer for cross-border transport to other Southern African countries like Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Swaziland and Lesotho.

Labyrinth Nursery specializes in hardy drought tolerant plants called succulents (vetplante in Afrikaans) 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! We also feature over 1,000 square metres of succulent gardens… from our succulent labyrinth garden to our free flowing walkway succulent gardens… to our landscaped display succulent gardens!

Walk-Our-Labyrinth / Succulent Gardens!

Another feature of our nursery is the Eddie Tshisimba Labyrinth which is a symbol of triumph over adversity and the winding path of life and our beautiful amazing hardcore drought tolerant indigenous / succulent gardens which get very little watering (other than rain) and yet continue to last and get more beautiful year in and year out… come and walk our labyrinth to help you get through tough times… or to help you figure out your next move in life… or even just to help you relax and take a time out… IT’S FREE 🙂

But, also come and spend some time in our succulent gardens above our nursery, where you will sometimes find some rare and unusual succulents growing! For those succulent fanatics (who normally like to steal / borrow their clippings from the roadside or unsuspecting friends … he he 🙂 we sell succulent ‘Clipping Bags’ so that you can go and take clippings of any plants that suite your fancy in our extensive succulent gardens! We have also made some garden design landscaping displays (mainly to show our capabilities in landscaping for our Love Landscapes landscaping clients. But, also great to give you ideas for your own garden designs.

Succulents / VetplanteSurvival Experts!

We try to show you the true potential of these amazing hardcore plants, which I call ‘Survival Experts‘ due to their amazing ability to hold life in their leaves or stems for many months before needing to put down roots to find the soil.
We have done many tests, and this is the main reason we sell ‘Succulent Clippings‘ on our online shopping site (GardenGoods.co.za.) Because, you can cut a piece of these amazing succulents / vetplante, and it will stay alive for many months, whilst going through the postal system possibly, before you need to plant it into soil. In fact, there is a good chance that if the delay is too long, this succulent / vetplant cutting will already have roots before it even arrives at your home!

“My own (me being Ryan Hermanson, founder of Labyrinth Nursery) experience with these amazing plants is endless, but I’ll tell you one little story that explains the magic that succulents possess… as a hobby, but possibly more than that one day, I have been making my own wooden / concrete succulent plant pots (to help me get over my divorce)… at first, I would plant succulent clippings in these pots with the intent on selling them as I made them… but it occurred to me to possibly make my range of pots first before adding plants to them… so I took out all of the succulent clippings and soil from the 10 or 15 pots that I had already planted, and left the succulent clippings on my glass patio table outside… after 3 months now… those succulent clippings are still alive on my glass table… some of them have roots (some not)… but all of them are still alive and their leaves are all pointing upwards towards the light… they have had no soil or fertilizer or water, yet they are holding onto life like true ‘Survival Experts‘… and this makes me fall in love with them and indeed God’s creation even more!”

Eddie Tshisimba Labyrinth – giving our story meaning!

The story of the Eddie Tshisimba Labyrinth is a long and winding one. In essence this beautiful winding Labyrinth represents our struggle in building this waterwise plant 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.)

Eddie’s death stunted our growth by almost a year, he was the professional builder in our team, he was the driving force of our 30 staff and the building of our nursery, he was an inspiration to all his co-workers due to his rising up from a controversial squatter camp north of Dainfern (where Steyn City now sits) to a landlord of his own built-up RDP house in Cosmo City, and Site Manger of our up-and-coming waterwise plant nursery in North Riding AH.

His death caused everything to collapse for us. In fact, we almost closed down before we even opened our doors to the public. I believe the building of our labyrinth, which was in dedication to Eddie, was the driving force that kept us alive and kept everyone going forward.

Labyrinth NurseryWaterwise Plant Nursery is BORN!

So, we changed our name from Love Landscapes Wholesale Nursery (at the time) to Labyrinth Nursery. And, in some way, this labyrinth has given our nursery a soul, a meaning deeper than just a plant nursery, deeper than just a business, deeper than just a garden, it’s God’s labyrinth and we are blessed to have received His inspiration when creating it all those years ago!

God’s LabyrinthGod’s NurseryGod’s Plants!

This is a spiritual labyrinth where life can be pondered. Hardships can be defeated. Memories can be planted like seeds. A place where you can place a photo of your dead relative or loved-one and come and visit from time to time.

We love that idea. And, one day when customers become more than  just customers, using our labyrinth as their very own accessible memorial to their own loved-ones, we will be honoured to be that place for them. Sharing in life with those who look for meaning. It is an honour we will always strive for!

Yes, we decided to build a succulent nursery, because we love succulents and all sorts of waterwise plants. But, along the way we realized that this is in fact God’s nursery, His will is always done here, we may have our own plans and guidance that we try to impart, but God is always in control of what goes on at Labyrinth Nursery and how quickly (or slowly) we progress.

Sometimes it feels like our path is winding because our labyrinth is winding, but it’s just the way life is, in order to appreciate the true value in things, there must always be an opposite to compare to. To truly appreciate success, there must be countless failures. To truly appreciate victory, there must be countless defeats. To truly appreciate well-being, you must indeed have tasted suffering!

The spirit of this labyrinth WILL find you, when the time is right in your life!

The time is right when the time is right, but ONLY when the time is right!

Great way to teach the kids about spirituality!

The labyrinth is for everyone and anyone who may need help or guidance in their own life, and we encourage everyone to walk-the-labyrinth and be open to God’s guidance in your heart and soul 🙂

But, it’s also fun for the kids, who may not take it as seriously, but enjoy running around after each other in circles, taking each turn at high speed!

Kids are closer to their free-spirit-selves and can find the fun in everything, so while you’re pondering life, your toddler can just enjoy something a bit different, out of the norm, to add a bit of meaning to their own young lives without even knowing it!

Why we specialise in succulents / vetplante at our Waterwise plant nursery!

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!

Come and experience our ‘World Of Succulents‘ for yourself, and possibly find a piece of your SELF!!
