If you live in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape or KwaZulu-Natal, here are tips for getting your coastal garden in tip-top shape this spring
Top-up pebbles and gravel
Spring is a great time to refresh, top-up or replace pebbles and gravel around the garden – especially between paving stones where dust and mud have accumulated.
Check for algae and moss on paving. Scrub down with a solution of copper sulphate or use a moss killer.
Plant flowering borders
Create a pretty spring border with the following indigenous flowering plants: Gazanias, Arctotis, Blue Felicias, Scabiosas and Cape daisies.
