With two-thirds of South Africa being semi-arid, gardening can be challenging and so we have a new obsession – succulents. Grow local species in your drought-tolerant garden and add to its architectural features some of the larger euphorbias and aloes. They vary from low ground covers to large shrubs and even trees of 10 metres tall. After walking with us through our cycad garden to look at various succulent ground covers and species, Ernst shares tips during an illustrated talk. In the afternoon we’ll get practical and learn how to grow succulents from seed and cuttings.
Lunch will be served at the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price.
