Herb plant and seed swap – Thank you!

Thank you to those who came along to Sarphati Park today to swap herbs, share ideas and give advice.  We were six in all.  Here you can see Michael and Andy mulling over the merits of an Aloe vera baby.

I was able to swap my surplus plants for some unusual seeds and a couple of plants which I didn’t already have at home.  After the swaps were done we wandered over the Centuurbaan to look at the pretty herb garden which is wrapped around a church and then onward for a swift biertje near the market.   The photo of the wrap around herb garden doesn’t do the place justice at all.  It is very sweet, has a great selection of plants and most seem to be well labelled.  The church is called Oranjekerk and the herb garden is known as a Bible garden. It is on the corner of 2e Van der Helststraat and it’s very hard to miss. Here’s a link to the churches web page about the garden.  It’s in Dutch but I think the photos speak for themselves.

So all in all a very pleasant lunchtime – thank you!
