Developments in our garden

Almost every day we add a picture of our garden to our ‘Green Cathedral of South Africa’ page on Facebook. We started this page a few years ago after the restoration and extension of the historical succulent garden of Soekershof. Today a year ago an Italian/German couple visited us there and made an offer to purchase. And that was it. But not with our love for succulent plants. With us we took a collection of a few hundred (more or less rare) beautiful specimens to our new home in Stanford, Western Cape and we are continuously adding and growing (from seeds and cuttings from around the globe) new uncommon (for South Africa) plants. Below an impression of the developments in our new garden from July 2011.
