WELCOME TO APRIL!
Family holidays and Easter time are here.
The garden will be enjoying the cooler weather and festive atmosphere too...
 
 
Carrots for the Easter Bunny
The Easter Bunny is coming soon! Kids, be sure to put out some carrots for him. What he can't manage to eat, the rest of the family can enjoy! The ‘Kuroda’ Carrot variety from Starke Ayres can be eaten fresh, juiced or added to stir-fries, curries and soups. It is an improved Chantenay-type and produces high quality, uniform deep red to orange roots that are tender and sweet. Click here to find out more about our seeds.
 
Proteas and Ericas
April is the best time to plant members of the Proteaceae and Ericaceae families. This means that all Erica, Protea and Pincushion plants should find a home in your garden soon.
 
Grasses
Cool season grasses can be planted now too. These include Shady Mix, Evergreen, 4 Evergreen and Play Mix ... we have grown a sample of each for you to compare next time you visit. 
 
Peas, Oh, Sweet Peas
Starke Ayres has a new pea variety that is available now: Mangetout. Sweet peas and peas are good companion plants for each other - plant them together on a teepee for best results and a wonderful aesthetic appeal in the garden.
 
Spring Preparation - bulbs and daisy seeds
It is also the time to prepare the beds for spring - plant your spring daisy seeds before winter sets in, including African daisies and Bokbaai daisies. Spring bulbs have just arrived in store, which also need to be planted now in autumn, so we are well prepared for you to stock your garden with colourful spring delights. 
 
Gift Shop
We have a wide selection of exciting new gifting items. Do not forget to visit us for our well-priced and comprehensive range of horticultural products, all of which will ensure your garden is always looking beautiful and is kept healthy. Click here for a sneak preview of what is on offer.

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.
