Shade for the Kids at De Wijnlanden

De WijnlandenIt looks like the kids at De Wijnlanden play school might develop green fingers. Friday saw our delivery crew planting 3 London plane trees - Platanus acerifolia. We donated these to the school with the idea that they will be providing shade in the years to come. The estate in its-self poses some rather challenging aspects in plant selections. It varies from sand, koffie klip to white pot clay where each situation requires carefully selected plants. In summer the clay is rock hard while in winter turns to putty. What is interesting and somewhat surprising is how well a number of notable trees handel these conditions. As a nursery, just down the road, we are happy to have both supplied and planted a fair amount of plants to this estate and its residence. A rewarding part of horticulture is after planting, watching the plants reach their potential. Guys i hope you enjoy the trees and learnt a little bit about them being planted. Enjoy.
