Planted here

- gardening for biodiversity

We are on Peninsula Sandstone Fynbos.

The East Patio is waiting for the spekboom hedge to grow ...
in the Rose Courtyard new trees break the expanse of boundary/garage wall
In May 2015 I planted on a blank slate for the Karoo Koppie and the verge
July 2015 planting along the West side at Spring Promise
Then to Summer Gold
Down the East side with the Washing Pergola is Cornish Stripe
The final section is the Woodland Walk and Froggy Pond

The plants that interest me enough to write a portrait, the Dozen for Diana choices, are listed at the Plant Portraits tab.
