How To Enjoy Your Winter Garden Guaranteed

In South Africa, we experience Autumn in April and as anyone knows, worldwide, it is a season that offers a very limited amount of choices as to what we can plant. So, while I was looking around for some new plants to try out, to bring some color to my drab and dull winter garden,  I was happy to come across an exciting new plant, at our local nursery which I’m dying to try out, it’s called Nemesia Nesia or “Banana Punch.”

The plant, is a wildly fragrant indigenous flower ideal for a winter garden. The plant needs to be grown in a sunny, warm bed or window box and is ideal for sandy soil. These plants grow 30 cm high and don’t need much water which, is another reason why it is such a perfect winter plant.

Hello, I’m Andre’ Hartslief, Tranquilpen© 2008 “I finally discovered, that man’s whole purpose, is not to do the right things in life or to be good, to be successful or famous. Our entire purpose in life is to express divinity unto everyone and everything. How we do that, is by transforming ourselves completely, from an old state of existence to a new state and if we start removing those limitations piece by piece, It is only, then, that the Creator of heaven and earth, (God), the one who gave us all life, will begin to express himself, unbridled through us.

    • Hello Branka, I hope you are well. Thank you for commenting on my winter flower article. So, In your country, you call the same flower Voila? We have another indigenous flower with a name like that, it’s called an African Violet. Thank you for sharing that information on my page.
