The Cape Horticultural Society encourages experienced and amateur gardeners to meet like-minded people who want to share knowledge, and to promote biodiversity, where plants flourish and the balance of nature exists.

Monthly Meeting


On Monday, 2 MARCH, Marianne Alexander will take us on a 40-minute whirl wind trip around the world, showcasing some of the most weird and wonderful plants she has met. From thrombolites – built up over centuries by colonies of microscopic bacterial cells, the grass tree Xanthorrhoea australis, trigger plants and Wollemi pines in Australia; cactus and yaretta Azorella compacta in South America; baobabs and pitcher plants from Madagascar; to cannon ball trees in Asia.

We meet …
