Fernhaven Nursery was created by Dr Chris Myburgh, a radiologist, approximately 30 years ago. It started out as a specialised Fern nursery growing and supplying indigenous and non-indigenous plants, as well as epiphytic ferns such as Platyceriums (Staghorns).

Chris developed a keen interest in Bromeliads around 2006. In 2010 he attended the international Bromeliad Society Conference in New Orleans, after which he started to collect and grow Bromeliads, which became a passion. While in the USA he met well-known hybridisers from whom he imported mother stock. After three years Chris was in a position to supply Bromeliads commercially.

Our Mission

The mission of the Nursery is to create a passion for ferns, especially Tree ferns and an interest in Bromeliads, thus attracting customers.

Our Vision

The vision of Fernhaven is to become a top Fern and Bromeliad supplier in South Africa where enthusiastic plant lovers can harvest ideas from our expansive range of products. With the help of the knowledgeable staff members they will be able to create their own garden paradise.
