Family Business at Table Cape

There is a proud heritage of agriculture and horticulture at the Table Cape Farm. Our family (the Roberts-Thomson's) settled on the Cape in 1910 and over subsequent generations have cleared the land, and stud farmed cattle and sheep.

We continue to be significant vegetable and crop producers. In 1984, Paul & Bronwen Roberts-Thomson imported their first tulip bulbs from Holland and since then Van Diemen Quality Bulbs has continued to expand and are now one of the major producers of not only tulip bulbs, but also dutch iris and liliums.

We really enjoy giving people the opportunity to grow these amazing plants and our hands-on experience and expertise puts us in the ideal position to nurture and encourage you to become successful bulb growers in your own right
