Have you ever seen those strange looking caterpillars with tiny white "spikes" on its back? We have often been asked if caterpillars carry eggs on their back, and this time we decided to ask a butterfly expert for more information. Steve Woodhall, master Lepidopterist, regularly helps us at Random Harvest Indigenous Nursery to answer questions on anything butterfly or caterpillar related. Here is what he said about this strange creature. The white egg-like things on the hairy caterpillar (which is probably a Tricolored Tiger Moth, Rhodogastria amasis) are Braconid wasp cocoons.

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.

Have you ever wondered how to plant bulbs? We grow the beautiful Scilla natalensis (Blue Squill) bulbs here at Random Harvest Indigenous Plant Nursery, and thought we would share with you how we grow them. They are such a lovely accent plant with their large grey green leaves, that even when not in flower they are very handsome indeed.
