Waterwise gardening talk

Create a beautiful waterwise garden on Cape Town’s sandy soils
The Friends of Meadowridge Common recently held a talk by Alice Notten, Chief Interpretive Officer at Kirstenbosch, on gardening with waterwise plants for flat, sandy gardens. Alice Notten is a botanist and a horticulturist at Kirstenbosch, specializing in fynbos gardening. You can read a summary of her talk on how to create a beautiful yet waterwise, indigenous and environmentally friendly garden on Cape Town’s more difficult sandy soils on the website of the Friends of Meadowridge Common. Sandy, infertile soils are a feature of most of Cape Town suburbs, especially in parts of Constantia, Meadowridge, Bergvliet and Plumstead. With water restrictions looming, this is a particularly relevant topic at the moment.
