Title - Autumn Winter

South Africans, as a whole, are outdoor people and find it difficult to be closeted indoors during the colder months. It’s not surprising that we find any opportunity to be outside, or to bring the outside in, during the autumn and winter seasons.

Knowing this, AT Nursery have focused on ensuring that no one needs to dread a drab winter garden or home. We have an extensive range of autumn and winter flowers with amazing colours that just love the winter season’s cooler conditions. From 9cm pots to 25cm pots as well as 4 and 6 packs, there’s a winter plant for every situation. Don’t wake up miserable in winter, start your day with the Joy of colour. You can have splendid colour bursting from your garden beds! Full sun or shade plants, there’s an option for everyone.

As one of the biggest and best primroses growers in South Africa, AT Nursery ensure that these awesome autumn and winter flowers are always readily available to create a great cold season garden.
