You will find Random Harvest Nursery an oasis of splendor tucked away in regal indigenous gardens and hectares of rich farmland and grassland, on the doorstep of Johannesburg, Pretoria, Sandton and Krugersdorp.

The nursery is laid out with meandering paths, encouraging leisurely strolls through, just wondering at the beauty and variety of the plants, each of which has a detailed information label.
