Meet the Team
Andrea’s Topiaries started as a hobby twenty-two years ago and has expanded ever since. I now have a wonderful team that works closely with me.
Our selection of beautiful handmade items are made by local men & women in the community at my workshop on the farm. These men & women are very talented and our workshop stays lively. I speak fluent Xhosa with my team which is a tremendous advantage.
Andreas Topiaries supplies Major Hotels, Décor shops and Event Coordinators in the Western Cape.
Meet Andrea Semple
I inherited my love for gardening and flowers from my mother. Growing up in the Eastern Cape we spent most of our time outdoors in the beautiful bushveld. This was my inspiration for my business which started 22 years ago.
My happiest place to be is the outdoors and in nature. Winter months are my favourite and
this is when I source most of my new materials for the next season. Through my foraging new ideas come to mind.
It all started years back, when I went on a course on how to make a Topiary tree. I left there bursting with excitement and inspiration to make my own and living on a farm in
Elgin, we are lucky to have many resources around us that are perfect materials for our creations. It took years to master the skill of preserving flowers and foliage but has been a huge stepping stone for us.
My business has grown and seems to grow more every year, we also are able to support local’s with work through Andrea’s Topiaries. It is truly my passion and I hope to inspire others through my creations.
