The Brackenridge landscape is based on indigenous gardening – complementing the ²/nature reserve principle.

Indigenous gardening provides trees and fruit for birds and small wildlife, as well as flowers all year round. The landscape is water wise – taking care of itself and requiring no regular sprinkling, resulting in a more eco-friendly approach and minimal impact on the natural environment.

Indigenous plants can be obtained from the following nurseries:

–  New Plant Nursery (Wholesale):  George  –  Tel:  044 870 0000

–  Feriam Nursery:  George

–  Tom’s Nursery / Windmill / Bloukrans / Kraaibosch:  Plettenberg Bay

 More information about indigenous gardening can also be obtained from Jean Sprag at The Botanical Society on tel. 044 533 2625.

A booklet called “Plant indigenous, it’s the wise thing to do” is available from The Print Shop in Plettenberg Bay at R10 each.
