How does her garden grow?

No cockle shells here, some stones..  When we think of gardens (particularly here in Durban) we often think luscious green… On the contrary, my mother, Helen, has created a unique and interesting garden mainly using stones, pot plants, succulents and cacti… I think the pics speak for themselves. Isn’t it cool?

    I think your garden is wonderful. I live in Perth Western Australia and the climate here is very hot and dry for most of the year so these types of gardens are emerging more than ever as we are very concious of water conservation. I have just finished putting together a succulent and cacti garden and my whole family loves it. they say it looks like a “Mexican” garden. I also used crushed pea gravel as a base and I must say the effect is very good to look at Bye – Clar
