My Fynbos Garden: Indigenous Plants

When Claire of Promenade Plantings asked for guest bloggers I signed up straight away. I do not do a lot of gardening posts on my blog and I thought this would be a great opportunity to expand. If you are interested to read My Fynbos Garden guest post, click here. I wrote about pelargoniums, succulents, black eyed Susans and buchu. To me it is very important to grow a fynbos garden. These plants are indigenous to our area and are therefore water wise. Living in a water scarce region, water wise plants are ideal. They only get watered when it rains. And in the Western Cape that is usually only over the winter months. These plants are grown in our soil which is full of clay. This is because we live at the bottom of a mountain. They are local to Gordons Bay and thrive without much care and attention.

There is a prize for one lucky reader who correctly guesses what this is – answers on my blog post please.  The winner will be decided at my discretion.

Do you have a fynbos garden? If so, what do you have growing in it?
