Jaap and Hannes Viljoen of Rooiklip Nursery in the historic town of Swellendam (on the garden route between Cape Town and George) are the experts on growing aloe hybrids in winter rainfall conditions since 2006. The nursery is now open on every weekday as well as Saturdays from 08h00 to 13h00, and anyone is welcome to visit.They also have a show garden that features many Sunbird Aloes favourites. His tourist centre on the nursery property shows all that is in flower at the time and is well worth the drive from Cape Town. He supplies nurseries all over the Western Cape province. His wife Annatjie (082 902 8720) runs a lovely Guest House on the nursery property, highly recommended for weekend stay-overs.
