Choosing plants for the shade garden

When choosing plants for the shade garden, look carefully at aspects like texture and leaf colour. Many of the Plectranthus have interesting, textured leaves which are also fragrant and the Crassula family have glossy leaves and many are interesting shapes. Some of them develop a pinkish outline during the colder months. Variegated leaves also lift the dark shade areas as they bring in the light.

How to get the best display of flowers from your Clivia plants.

Clivia do like an acid soil and you can achieve this by adding bark chips to the soil as it lowers the PH levels. Don't forget to add compost and mulch well. Keep the plants dryish during the winter as this will stimulate the formation of flower spikes. Enjoy a mass of flowers in Spring!
