GEORGE NEWS - Autumn is here in its full glory and after the good rains, George gardeners can look forward to adding splashes of colour by planting the Leucospermum murii, the Albertinia pincushion.
This is just one of many plants available at the Garden Route Botanical Garden's (GRBG) nursery section. The colour of the pincushion flowers changes from yellow to orange as it ages.
In the GRBG's large fynbos section, garden enthusiasts will find a new range of indigenous ferns and a selection of restio plants suitable for small gardens. The popular sale specials are a definite bonus and should be noted.
A number of well-established Brabejum stellatifolium (wild almond) plants are looking stunning. There is a large selection of indigenous trees and shrubs, aloes and succulents, ground covers, shade plants and much more. Potting soil, manure and tree stumps, as well as a selection of botanical books and cards, are for sale. The GRBG now offers bank card facilities. There is lots of parking and don't forget that the Getafix Garden Café offers lovely light refreshments.
