The real Riverine Rabbit would not be found in nature, on forest floors, with plenty of compost, mulch and Plectranthus ciliatus as our Random Harvest Bunny was pictured in the nursery. It in fact has a very specific area that it occurs in – only along rivers in Nama and Succulent Karoo areas, in the Central and Small Karoo. In other parts of the country, you will find hares, which are related to the Riverine Rabbit.

Acacia siberiana var. woodii - The Paperbark Thorn has been called the quintessential African tree. It is one of the many South African Indigenous tree species that has grown to full and magnificent proportions at Random Harvest Indigenous Plant Nursery - please ask our staff to show you these beautiful trees. Its spreading, flat-topped crown presents a mass of white pom-pom florets which give off an amazing scent to a whole variety of insect pollinators.

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).

It is important to distinguish between a grass garden and a grassland garden. Grass gardens are planted up purely with grasses.
Grassland gardens, on the other hand, include indigenous veld grasses, wildflowers, bulbs, Aloes etc., and non-living elements (wood, stone and often, water).
They are full of life, with a multitude of creatures visiting and living in them. Selecting indigenous plants suitable for grasslands and meadows will result in good biodiversity (plant, animal and micro-organism).
