Streptocarpus rexii was found in Knysna, S. Africa in 1818 by James Bowie, a plant collector for Kew Gardens. That was the start of the cultivation of streptocarpus plants. To celebrate this important bicentenary, we have dedicated part of our Chelsea display this year to the many beautiful and delicate streptocarpus species.

Houseplants are hugely trendy right now and as Cardiff's Master Grower, we are flying the flag for British-grown indoor plants.
The RHS Master Grower scheme celebrates top quality nurseries, and the RHS have chosen Dibleys Nurseries as the #RHSCardiff Master Grower. The RHS says 'A family-run business specialising in streptocarpus, they really know their stuff and are so enthusiastic about their plants - make time in your day to pay them a visit and see their delightful display.'
