Gardener's corner

I don't recall seeing gazanias in any of the market gardens in England however I know you can buy seeds from English suppliers so I imagine they tolerate cooler climates.

Apparently there is a perennial version as well as the annual one. I think ours are annuals but it doesn't matter because they set seed easily.

The ones we have at the moment I grew from seed last year. Hopefully they will flower throughout the summer and provide us with a lot more seed for next year's plants.

Apart from the colours here, we have various shades of pinks and blood reds.

One of the joys of these plants is that you don't know what colour the flowers will be until they open and of course they only open when the sun comes out.
