Long Weekend Winter Plant Sale

LONG WEEKEND SALE! We are having a 10% sale on all plants this weekend… Friday the 16th of June – Sunday the 18th of June (Fathers Day!) from 10am-4pm ๐ŸŒฟย Now that we are in-between some long awaited winter rain fall, it is finally the perfect time for planting hardy indigenous plants. Propagated and grown from seed right here at the nursery – if these plants have survived the elements here at Cape Point, they will thrive in your gardens. On Sunday the Gray family (Gael, Tom and Roushanna) will be pottering around in the retail – come share a cup of hot chocolate and chat about plants! For questions or directions please email us on gaelgray@gmail.com or roushanna@hotmail.com

Winter photo haikus

For a change in rhythm, I decided to describe these winter photos of the nursery in Haiku form. They are not very good, possibly a bit cheesy, but I definitely had fun writing them!

Here are some haikus about nature. This blog has a new haiku every day. This one shows kids how to write haikus. And these are a few funny haikus.

Give it a go – its relaxing and fun and a perfect thing to do in your garden with a cup of tea on a sunny Sunday morning.

Spring into Fynbos event

Our Spring into Fynbos was a great success, even with a bit of drizzle everyone had smiles on their faces and (by now) plants in their gardens!
