The Pink Geranium

From the humble beginnings in 1991 (over twenty years ago!) to the well established brand that we are today, The Pink Geranium has lived and laughed and loved and learnt its way through landscaping spectacular scenery and growing rare, funky and wow plants! We have a proud list of gardens in our portfolio - from massive wine estates to more boutique style individual gardens. Additionally, we have a whole list of unusual and exciting plants that we are passionate about growing, including Agapanthus, Hemerocallis (Daylily), Louisiana Iris, Kniphofia, Watsonia, Lachenalia and much more.

Spring Time

A riot of yellow banksia rose and wisteria along my drive to work this morning. Not my normal planting palate or colour combination, but it works and is spectacular. This planting is along a farm road just outside Paarl and must stretch for about 25m along the farm fence.
Lucky to enjoy this sight most mornings.

No Water Required Here

Clivia season in the Cape and flowering plants have stepped up to the plate this past week. At home I have a great display in my dry shade.
Today I visited #babylonstoren where I photographed this beautiful light peach bloom with a green center. Their display is looking fantastic and well worth a visit. In fact I always slot in a visit to Babylonstoren this time of the year as it is just an amazing time of the year to visit and to be outdoors.
