Our local Botanical Society recently hosted a presentation with the above title. Wally Menne inspired us with wonderful images of our local toughies and reminded us of the importance of gardening with ecology in mind.
I was walking around my beautiful garden and took these pics of my own Fool-Hardy plants (currently flowering) to share with you.
Wherever you are on the planet your local or naturally occurring plants will always thrive best in your garden as they are adapted to your local conditions. You will also be contributing to sustaining life in your local eco-system and draw a greater abundance of birds, butterflies, insects, reptiles and mammals into your garden.
I hope you enjoy these images of some the the resilient plant for coastal dwellers in KZN South Africa. I’ve added info for best planting conditions for people wanting to plant them in my area.
All these plants and 100’s more will
be available at the Indigenous Plant Fair
