Botanical Society indigenous garden tour

Saturday, 24 March 2012

Oluhlaza is the isiZulu word for green and title of the blog recently created, for the property in Umgeni Heights http://oluhlaza.blogspot.com. The old Buttery homestead, tucked away on a panhandle, is a green enclave providing refuge to those who live in its garden and those who work and live in the rest of the spaces. The planted garden is 20 years old with original coastal Ficus burkei specimens in the back yard; 2 of which have very recently succumbed to the heavy rains Durban is experiencing. These new sunlight rich areas are to be freshly planted up in time for visitors to enjoy the garden and experience a variety of habitats ranging from water to wild grasses to serious shade. Please join us for the tour of this living working garden.
