ALLURING AUTUMN IN THE GARDEN
As the weather cools and the soil temperature drops, post-summer gardening options become available. The cooler weather makes time spent in the garden more enjoyable... It is the perfect place to be with the family or just for a little alone-time.
Autumn is the time to start planting fynbos. Add Proteas, Leucodendrons and Leucospermums to your garden. The King Protea, Protea cynaroides, is particularly magnificent, and it is our proud national flower! For some seasonal colour in the garden, plant violas and pansies.
Follow this month's gardening tips and plant Starke Ayres Star Veg for optimum quality. Parsley, cabbage, coriander, dill, thyme, onions, peas, lettuce, celery, radish, turnip, beetroot, broad beans, carrots, leeks, sprouts, broccoli and lettuce can all be sown this season.
Enjoy some detoxing greens as well as herbal teas straight from your autumn garden. Gardening for kids is a great way of getting the little ones involved with nature in a fun, safe and healthy environment. The garden is really a place for everyone!
If you love trees, like having fun and are looking to help out with a good cause, then join us in supporting Greenpop with their third Reforest Fest in the magical Platbos forest.
HAVE A HAPPY & HEALTHY AUTUMN SEASON!
