Indigenous plant sale at Van Stadens

2015-10-01 06:00

The hype of going indigenous in the garden is something that all gardeners should take note of as it improves the environment and saves money.

The most important aspect of indigenous plants, also known as native plants, is that they are hardy as it has through ages, adapted to the local conditions. This means that they have their natural enemies and friends and do not need pesticides, fertilizers or watering.

The floral wonderland at Van Stadens Wild Flower Reserve, on Saturday morning hosts an indigenous plant sale, trail running and mountain bike ride. It is hosted by the Friends of Van Stadens, who have it at heart to educate and conserve.

The trail run, hosted by Free Spirit Adventures, starts at 08:00 and the family mountain bike ride, hosted by Fat Tracks starts at 10:00.

)The Van Stadens Wildflower Reserve is situated on the old Cape Road (R102). The entrance to the reserve is on the right hand side of the Van Stadens Pass road, less than a kilometre from the N2. The gates open at 07:30. There is no entry fee. For more information contact 083 667 7322
