Indigenous Gardens - Vital Habitat For Urban Biodiversity

Indigenous gardens have a very big part to play in nature conservation. Urban sprawl has a negative effect on biodiversity (the number and variety of living things in a specific area).

The best way of making sure that urban wildlife survives is by creating habitat, something best achieved by planting indigenous gardens. In this video, Linda De Luca, owner of Random Harvest Indigenous Plant Nursery explains about the importance of providing habitat for garden wildlife in an urban area.

Pensioners Day at Random Harvest Indigenous Nursery & Tea Garden

There are so few places in and around Johannesburg where, as a pensioner, you can enjoy tea and cream scones in a beautiful and peaceful outdoor garden setting for just R30.00. Once a week our Pensioners' Special at Random Harvest Indigenous Plant Nursery allows for just this.

Easy access to the tea garden and the retail nursery means that even senior citizens using walkers or in a wheelchair can reach the outside sitting areas, and enjoy the garden-like meandering paths around the nursery.

Our tea garden in Muldersdrift is set under spreading Acacias, and on a cold day, one can sit in front of a cosy fireplace and still enjoy being away from the city.  We are less than 30 minutes from many retirement homes in Johannesburg, making a group outing very accessible.  There is plenty of safe parking.

Botanical Art Exhibition by Gillian Condy at Random Harvest Indigenous Nursery

My love for South African Indigenous Plants goes much further than just the plants in the soil.

I get so excited when I see botanical artwork that not only captures the likeness of the plant, but the essence of it too. Gillian Condy’s beautiful botanical paintings do just that.

We are delighted that Gillian will be exhibiting some of her botanical watercolours and prints at Random Harvest Indigenous Plant Nursery, from Saturday the 2nd of April until the end of the month.  We are open from 8am to 5pm daily.

Indigenous Shady Gardens - beat the Greenhouse Effect

Creating a colourful, shady indigenous forest garden in your back yard may seem an impossible task.

Most people these days feel that their small outdoor spaces are unsuitable for creating a tree-rich shady haven.

At Random Harvest Indigenous Plant Nursery, Jeffrey and Fritos have transformed a very hot, small courtyard space into a unique indigenous shady garden with astounding attention to detail in their garden design.  Not only did they look at the key elements of a forest, but they created the garden with their nursery customers frequently asked questions about gardening in the shade, in mind.

Create a Butterfly Balcony Garden

The best way to invite butterflies to your balcony or patio garden is by creating habitat to encourage them to take up residence. Habitat is simply a place where a living creature can meet all of their needs for food, shelter, water and a place to breed. You can provide for all of these needs in an indigenous plant container garden on your balcony, so that you can enjoy beautiful butterflies even in a tiny outdoor space.

Our most recent display garden gives you plenty of ideas on how to attract butterflies to your own beautiful butterfly balcony garden by using indigenous plants.  Here are some great tips from Linda De Luca and her team at Random Harvest Indigenous Plant Nursery to create the best “invitations” for butterflies to your container garden.
