The Botanical Gardens of South Africa

Spring has sprung, the sun is shining, and the season is in full swing! It’s time to get out there and start enjoying spring’s greatest gifts, the flowers. You could take a stroll through your local park, do some work in the garden or go where the flowers are the most spectacular… the South African botanical gardens, a plethora of our nation’s natural beauty.

With botanical gardens situated across the country, there is little excuse not to go and lose yourself in the splendour of nature for just a while. The most famous of these botanical gardens is arguably the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, situated in Cape Town. Set against the eastern slope of Table Mountain, the Kirstenbosch gardens have two separate areas, the cultivated gardens and the protected area which is home to indigenous fynbos and forest. The cultivated garden is home to an array of flowering species of plants, while in the protected area one can see the King Protea, which occurs naturally there, in full flower. One of the truly amazing parts of the Kirstenbosch botanical garden is the Afromontane forest, which is awe-inspiring when walking through.

Sticking to the coastal botanical gardens we move on to one of the lesser-known treasures in South Africa, the Durban Botanic Gardens. This is the oldest surviving botanical gardens in South Africa, having been established in 1849. The highlight of these gardens is without a doubt the Orchid House, which is home to several different species. The best time to visit the Orchid House is without a doubt during the spring months, September through November.

Moving away from the coastal cities we find ourselves in the capital of South Africa, the Pretoria Botanical Gardens. Surrounded by urban development, this is a much-needed refuge from the hustle and bustle of modern life, not just for us, but for the wildlife that occurs there. There are over 220 recorded species of birds meaning that during spring the garden comes alive to the sound of thousands of bird calls. Stroll through the gardens and you can climb to the top of a ‘koppie’ from which you can view the entire gardens and the surrounding city, a scene that sets alight the senses with sound and colour.

The last botanical garden on this list is the Johannesburg Botanic Gardens. Placed just outside the city centre, the gardens are home to over 30 000 trees, 4500 species of plants, an arboretum, a Rose Garden and Herb Garden. The gardens are also frequently the venue for concerts and live performances.

This article by no means covers all the Botanical Gardens within South Africa, but rather the ones that, for many South Africans, are close to home. The gardens are perfect for spending a beautiful spring or summer day, whether you are taking the entire family on an outing or you wish to take that special someone on a romantic picnic, the gardens provide you with the perfect setting.

NetFlorist offers a range of fully stocked picnic baskets, complete with red roses, champagne or a beautiful bottle of red wine that makes those romantic moments so much easier to come by. For those family moments, NetFlorist also offers healthy fruit baskets and gourmet hampers that will have the whole family smiling.

Water-wise

Become water-wise with NetFlorist

Water is a natural resource that is absolutely necessary for all life forms on Earth. As population numbers increase, the important resource dwindles. The scarcity of water is not to be overlooked. It takes a natural phenomenon such as a drought to remind us to always be water-wise.

We’ve fondly named the campaign #LoveEveryone. Flowers say, ‘I love you’ but a cactus says, “I love everyone’. Spend time browsing through our cactus and succulent options, but also take a moment to look at home you can create a water-wise garden. Here are seven tips to take into consideration:

Water-wise

The perfect low maintenance gift for a friend or loved one, this small succulent in a blue ceramic glazed pot will look great sitting on their desk at home or at the office. Send this cute little plant as a great gift with NetFlorist today!

Choose locally suitable water-wise plants

There are a number of stunning plants that require minimal water. Plant said plants after the first rains. This gives the plant the opportunity to create a strong root system just before it faces the dry season. Choose indigenous plants and shrubs. They are usually less ‘thirsty’ than alien vegetation. Check that are both locally occurring and hardy, non-thirsty plants.

Group water plants according to their water needs

By grouping your plants according to their water needs, you avoid wasting water on plants that don’t need it. An irrigation system is best for watering your garden. They use controlled amounts of water, unlike a hosepipe. Another tip is to soak the ceramic pots instead of the actual plant. The ceramic retains moisture for longer and it seeps into the roots.

Reconsider grass

Grass lawns are incredibly ‘thirsty’. Be sure not to cut your grass too short as longer leaves shade the roots and reduce water evaporation.

Prepare the soil well

Make sure you dig in plenty of compost at least once a year. This helps aid the water retention of the soil. It also adds nutrients, encourages earthworm activity, improves aeration and drainage.

Use Mulch

Organic mulch helps to reduce evaporation, run-off, erosion, suppresses weed growth, enriches the soil and it helps prevent compacting of the soil. The best formula for making organic mulch is by mixing shredded leaves, straw, compost, shredded newspaper and grass clippings.

Water correctly and only when necessary

Save water by watering thoroughly but less often. Water when evaporation is at its lowest – in the early morning and late afternoon. A drip or underground irrigation also helps.

Create shade and windbreaks

Plant wind-resistant, fast-growing and water-wise trees and shrubs. Wind and the sun are both factors that can dry out plants.

Africa

Why we celebrate Africa Day

The 25th May is a day used specifically to celebrate Africa’s independence, freedom and liberation strife from colonial powers. The event commemorates the Organisation of African Unity, which is commonly known as the African Union – 25 May 1963. The move was originally inspired by Ghana’s independence. Ghana was the first country in the South of the Sahara gaining its independence on March 6, 1957. Ghana’s independence inspired other countries to fight against colonial rule.

“The evolution of humanity says that Africa reaffirms that she is continuing her rise from the ashes. Whatever the setbacks of the moment, nothing can stop us now! Whatever the difficulties, Africa shall be at peace!” – Thabo Mbeki former President of South Africa, “I am an African” speech delivered on 8 May 1996.

The day is celebrated annually, in many different countries across the continent. Events include formal gatherings and panel discussions, street marches, speeches by political and social leaders, and rallies featuring cultural entertainment, poetry and speakers. Choose to celebrate Africa Day the NetFlorist way. Honour the day by surprising a special someone with an Africa-themed gift. Keep the memory alive among the ones you love most.

One of our favourite options for the day reads:

“Africa is one of those places where you get to see the glory of the Lord, the wonder and miracles of restoration just, quite literally, unfold before your eyes.”
