About Duckitt Nurseries

Duckitt Nurseries was established in 1979, and is situated approximately 3km south of Darling on the west coast of South Africa. Duckitt Nurseries specializes in producing and exporting top quality Cymbidium Orchid cut-flowers to mainly European and East USA regions. We are constantly breeding, selecting and importing new varieties, to accommodate the needs of an ever-changing global flower market.

Cymbidium, Ansellia, Cattleya alliance, Oncidium alliance and many other orchid types are hybridized, selected and grown for the local pot plant market. Our nursery not only supplies many retail nurseries and supermarkets in South Africa, but is also open to the public on the1st Saturday of the months May to November from 09h00 to 12h00. Entrance is free, and plants and flowers are for sale in the pack-shed.

The green house with the most spectacular display of flowers at that time is also opened to the public. We also have an annual Orchid show on Oudepost farm on the 3rd weekend in September, (which takes place at the same time at the Darling Wild Flower Show). This is a fully landscaped show with a tea room and sales area, where many popular and interesting new varieties of orchids can be purchased.
