Established in March 1971, this farm of roses has been run by the same family for over fifty years. The founder, Ludwig Taschner, was born in Germany and parried off more obstacles than life ought to throw at anyone as he survived the second world war and escaped from East Germany. Luckily, he managed to make his way to Pretoria in 1962. In the same year, he worked for Buss Nurseries and shortly after started the beautiful nursery we’ve come to love today.
According to them, Ludwig was one of the pioneers who propagated roses in containers. Before this, roses were usually only sold as pruned, bare-rooted plants during the winter.
This resulted in the opportunity where gardeners could choose roses specifically by their flowers, fragrance, and growing habits. Read
