112 Plants for You and your Bushbuck

Gentle indigenous gardening at Zimbali. A guide to living in harmony with wildlife.



This publication is for anyone interested in indigenous plants and the wildlife they support.

It starts with landscaping principles, before-and-after photos of Zimbali Coastal Estate scenes and a section on indigenous and exotic plants to avoid.  The plant profiles follow, one per page,  all having great survival value for the insects, birds, mammals and other creatures that we may be lucky enough to observe in our gardens.

Profiles include descriptions and growing conditions plus an ‘About the Plant’ section.  At least three photographs per page show close-ups of the flowers, fruit and leaves as well as the massed effect or mature form.
