  • Starke Ayres stocks a wide range of Organic Seedlings and summer heralds the time for all summer hotties such as Chillies, Peppers, Basil, Coriander, Pumpkins, Tomatoes, Sweetcorn, Watermelon and Sweet Melon to shine.
     
  • Plant flower seedlings. We have a wide variety of waterwise seedlings such as Portulaca, Petunias, Dianthus, Lobelia and Marigolds. Protect newly planted seedlings against snails by scattering some Kombat Snails.
     
  • The heat can take a lot of nutrition out of the plants in the garden. Add some nutrients in the form of an organic Starke Ayres 3:1:5 or Atlantic All Purpose Fertiliser.
     
  • Tillandsia spp ( Air plants ) has become a very popular addition to our garden palette. Exciting new stockhas just arrived and will become the new talking point amongst your friends .
     
  • Feed with organic slow release fertilizers which needs little watering and aids in retaining moisture. Now a first in Cape Town, pelletized kraal manure from Just Organics, available in pellet or crumble.
     
  • Plant a hanging basket for the veranda or patio. Be adventurous and plant succulents for the very hot areas on the veranda and herbs for the kitchen. See our display and starter kit for the latest concept in hanging baskets in the Western Cape. Now only R159.00 and valid until the end of November.
     
  • In large gardens, plant huge swathes of drought-hardy groundcovers and spreading succulents like Crassulas, Cotyledons, Vygies, Gazanias, Arctotis and Osteospermums. Include some groupings of grasses and restios like Elegia tectorum.
     
  • Mulch flower beds with a good quality mulch to help with water retention in the soil. It will also help with keeping the plant roots cool and aid in optimising the growth potential of your plants. Adding a good handful of Gold Dust will also improve the drainage reducing chances of water evaporation or run off.
     
  • Plant new exciting varieties of Protea and Leucospermums. Now in stock is the Protea King Pink and Pincushion Carnival. Once established they will become the champions in a waterwise garden.
     

 

GARDEN CHAT ON FMR

 

The Starke Ayres Garden Chat on Fine Music Radio (FMR) is a comment on a more natural approach to gardening. It covers all aspects of everyday gardening practice with the emphasis on soil management, utilizing the correct plant material and following an environmental code of conduct. The aim is to bring both garden and gardener into the natural realm. It is important for us to know the impact our gardens are having on the environment as a whole, so that we can play a positive role.

QUALITY PRODUCTS AND SERVICE

STARKE AYRES has been a supplier of quality seed, seedlings, trees, shrubs, pot plants, bulbs and a variety of gardening accessories to the gardening public of Cape Town for well over a century.

Aware of the fact that climatic and soil conditions in the Western Cape vary greatly from those in the summer rainfall areas of the north, we have gone to great lengths to identify plants that are particularly well adapted to the Mediterranean climate of the Western Cape.

In the garden centre plants are displayed in such a manner as to make the shopping experience an easy and a pleasant one. Customers need to know how adaptable plants are, their growing conditions and how they can be used for maximum impact in the garden.
