Its official. Take Root Nursery is now open and ready to provide Cape Town inner city home gardeners and landscapers with all their organic gardening and irrigation needs.

Set within the historic grounds of Nazareth House in Vredehoek, Take Root Nursery is the realisation of Bridget Albert of GROW Landscaping’s vision to create an inner city nursery and sanctuary with a strong emphasis on sustainable gardening principles. This is evident in the way that the nursery has grown organically from the existing site at Nazareth House, utilizing reused and upcycled materials for its creation.
