IN summer and winter eagle-eyed members of the Keep Hillcrest Beautiful Association, Barbara Fourie and Maggie Fleming, scout around Hillcrest to find the winning verge for the season.

Debra Arrowsmith of 35A Shortlands Avenue is the winner of the 2017 Winter Verge.

“Arrowsmith’s garden and verge is a delight of indigenous, water-wise plants. The gardener who takes great pride in the garden is Michael Mchunu, who will also receive a hamper,” said Fleming.

“We are very grateful to Raul Lurie of Richdens Spar who is our ongoing sponsor for the verge competitions.

“The association thanks all the dedicated gardeners in the area who delight in keeping their verge beautiful. Hillcrest is most fortunate to have them in our midst – keeping Hillcrest beautiful for all to appreciate.”
