Mandela Day – Planting on the traffic island at the Oakhurst Spar

Mandela Day is a special day for everyone in South Africa, also for Keep Hout Bay Beautiful!

Our green thumbs were planting on Mandela Day on the traffic island at the Oakhurst Spar. We planted four Gazania’s and four vygies to make the island more beautiful for everyone. Vygies are one of South Africa’s most colourful plant groups and the native Gazania’s have lovely flower heads with brilliant colours, which appear in the late spring and are often in bloom throughout the summer into autumn. Looking forward to see them bloom!
