The Clivia Club in Kwa-Zulu Natal formed in 1994 with a small group of enthusiasts. Realizing that Kwa-Zulu Natal had a huge Clivia gene pool with 3 species indigenous to our borders we had a wealth of genetic material which we wanted to share with other Clivia enthusiasts. In 2001 the KZN Clivia Club Committee then chaired by Sean Chubb had the initiative to market excess clivia seed produced by the Clivia Club members to other Clivia enthusiasts. The KZN seed bank was formed.

The demand for seed both from Habitat and Nursery grown varieties proved to be almost unsatisfyable. The seed bank flourished each year attracting more and more overseas and local clivia enthusiasts with wide variety of new and exciting crosses.

The KZN Clivia Breeders was established in 2008 with 3 principle members but also offering seed for sale from other KZN Clivia Club members. Currently KZN Clivia Breeders markets mainly the seed from Val Thurston and Sean Chubb – Thurlow Flora. Both Sean and Val started Clivia breeding programmes in the late 1970`s and have a huge genetic base with multiple generation of breeding ,thus offering a genetically diverse range of seed including all 7 species of Clivia.

The KZN Clivia Breeders offer TOP quality genetics in a huge variety of colours and forms, producing many new modern colours, but also maintaining the genetic purity of our habitat Heritage plants. 2014 will be the 14 year we have been offering seed for sale and we pride ourselves in producing seed of the highest quality and true to type. Many seeds offered are line bred and produce an expected outcome. Having in many cases a number of generations of breeding behind an offering, the plants flowered from such seed is highly reliable.

Seed is marketed from the beginning of April until the end of September or until such time as we are out of stock. Two principle methods are used to market our seed and they are via our website and at clivia shows and exhibitions. Our website www.cliviasa.co.za hosts our Galleries where customers can view our exciting range of Clivia. We also do send our seed list to our current and past customers and also any other interested parties. If interested please mail Sean Chubb on kzncliviabreeders@cliviasa.co.za.
