COWIES HILL GARDEN TOURS

gardentourBotSoc presents a tranquil forest garden

We re-visit the lovely garden of Rob and Jane Crankshaw, which we last saw in 2009. Rob and Jane started planting indigenous trees 22 years ago in the shade of large exotics in their garden. Over time, as the understory developed, Fiddlewoods, Brazilian Peppers and Jacarandas were removed. This charming home now boasts a garden with sheltered walks that wind their way through a forest of about 80 indigenous tree species, and over 200 indigenous plant species overall, plus some exotics.

Tours of up to two hours in total will start promptly at 08:30, 10:30 and 14:30 respectively. Booking and pre-payment are essential. Members R45; Non-members R50; children R25. Price includes tea and cake. Proceeds to branch projects.

Numbers are limited to 20 people per tour. To book, please email: botsoc-kzn@mweb.co.za
or phone 031 201 5111 on Mondays and Thursdays between 10:00 and 16:00 or cell
071 869 3693.
