General Information

Greg Pettit is now offering plants from his internationally renowned Green Goblin flower bulb collection to you, the enthusiast, at unbeatable prices. The Green Goblin Nursery works closely with the local conservation department. The KwaZulu-Natal (ex Natal) conservation department is the oldest in Africa. Natal is home to the oldest game reserve in Africa and single handedly we saved the white rhino from extinction. With those feats behind the body, it is no wonder that we have strict rules that if kept, will allow our plant heritage to be enjoyed for centuries to come. Inspections of my bulbs and plants are done at least biannually and no permits are granted before the origin of the plant is verified. Bulbs are generally of flowering size. All bulbs are cultivated, either by seed or from cloning.

The Green Goblin nursery started from humble beginnings in 1986 in Zululand. The nursery moved to Durban (Natal) in 1991 and by 1995 African bulbs had become the mainstay of the nursery. The Ansell Collection of Cyrtanthus was added in 1995 and this collection has been added to, and now comprises of one of the largest and most beautiful collections of Natal Cyrtanthus in the world. The Ansell Collection began in 1945 in Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia) and was moved to South Africa in 1967. This is one of the oldest and documented collections of Cyrtanthus that is in private hands.
