“…These qualified physiologists had the courage to grow only indigenous plants when they weren’t terribly popular……they are a mine of valuable information when it comes to choosing the correct species and plant suitability.”
– Franchesca Watson, House and Garden.

“…What delighted me was the sensory element: new shapes, textures and fragrances”

Rupert Jefferies, Cape Chat.

“…If you are looking for indigenous plants for the garden and sound advice on what will grow where, then this is the place to visit.”
