The most exciting day in the gardeners diary is almost upon us. The annual Botanical Society’s Indigenous plant fair takes place from 9 am – 4 pm on the 5th and 6th of Septemper, at the Munies Sports Field, John Zikhali Road (new name for Sydenham Road), Durban (just below the Botanic Gardens). This popular indigenous plant extravaganza showcases the widest variety of indigenous plants available in Kwazulu-Natal. Experts are on hand to advise, and displays to inspire. The focus of the fair this year is Planning Your Garden. For more information tel. 031 201 5111.
It is a bit of a bun-fight but you can get plants here that are impossible to find at nurseries and they are reasonably priced.
