Sow Some Seed

Seed - Colour the most economical way!Water wise African Daisies lead the pack when it comes to loads of colour from seed for spring but thatís not all there is to choose from. We love the tough Bokbaai Vygies, dainty Lineria and the fragrant Virginian Stocks which are just as easy to grow and give you loads of colour the most economical way.

The Namaqualand is world renown for the display it produces in late winter and you can have that on your pavement or a sunny winter dry patch in your garden.


Colour Everywhere

Who can resist Pansies?Nothing beats the winter blues and lifts the spirits like a spot of bright colour. Itís time to plant the next seasons colour. By planting now your Pansies, Primulas and more will have an advantage over later planted ones because the warmer weather now will help them to grow bigger.

Did you know that one Pansy plant will have well over 600 flowers? No wonder they are SAís most popular winter and spring bedding plant.


Colouring it up

Who can resist Pansies?Start thinking about colour for your winter and spring garden. The rains will have boosted some of the autumn seedlings but many of the summer ones will have started the trip to their end.

Our all time favourites are starting to surface. Of course itís Pansies for sun and Primulas for shade and who can resist fragrant sweet peas for the vase?


Fairies and Pixy dust

Small scale gardening - Miniature Gardens At some point or another when we were younger we all loved seeing and playing with a miniature version of the world we live in. Girls played with doll houses and boys played with train sets and dinky cars. Today the world has changed but the joy of expression on a small scale is seen in villages built out of Lego and fairies joining dinosaurs in the playground. The latest trend in gardening is for young and old and is a great weekend project to get young minds away from screens putting fingers in the earth. Miniature gardening is taking the world by storm one tiny step at a time.

It doesn't matter if you're not an expert gardener miniatures always turn out to be cute.†Of course girls like to make them fairy gardens but that is not all, there is so much more to do. Finding ones creative spirit is what itís all about. Itís in building a land of your imagination or dreams and in tending it that the therapy for young and old is found.
