Fynbos in the suburbs

My garden in May last year. In the foreground: an Erica hybrid with salmony pink flowers and Leucadendron 'Blush'.

I have about 4 m2 which receives enough sun for growing proper fynbos - the space is more precious than real estate. At present there are a few Agathosma, Phylica ericoides, Scabiosa incisa, grasses, Cotyledon orbiculata, Gazanias, Geranium incanum and the red leucadendrons. We won't talk about turnover - that would be telling.

  1. I've just realized how many years it's been since I've seen your garden: There's a pond!
