Our nursery is unique in the area offering a variety of plants both indigenous and popular for both the garden, as a gift or as a memento of your visit to the Vumba. We also have a selection of baskets, jams, pickles and Vumba ground coffee.
Our unique and rustic basketware is made from an indigenous plant which is also considered a local pest. It is a prolific grower in the Vumba, called smilax anceps, it is a thorny plant and will catch you unawares when walking through the bush. It is found in open scrub or forest margins.
However, it does make for some attractive basketware and helps us keep this plant in control. See some of our examples below.
Visit our tea garden for breakfast lunch or tea, after a walk in the mountains, a drive through the area or when visiting the Hivu Adventure Park.
The Hivu Tea Garden offers a simple but delightful menu of teas, coffee, delicious milkshakes and sodas. For meals we offer breakfast and light lunches. But don’t miss the all time favourite our Hivu scones served with jam and cream.
Sit in the garden on sunny days to enjoy the Vumba ambience or on cold, wet days get cosy upstairs by the log fire !
