The aviary at Dunedin Botanic Garden has a long, and intriguing, history.
Heathers form one of the largest genus of South African plants with over 600 endemic species, ranging from ground-hugging plants to small trees.
Gardening can be a source of joy and relaxation, but not if the pressure of keeping a well-maintained garden adds stress to our lives.
While gardens have a lull in winter, not all plants do. In fact, many come to the fore at this time of year, with flowers, fruit, colourful bark, leaves and scents.
This delightful little climber deserves to be better known than it is.
When selecting flowering trees for your garden, it is natural to focus on their flowering time. But equally eye-catching are their winter features.
At the south end of the Cherry Walk in the Rhododendron Dell at Dunedin Botanic Garden is a sweeping band of mature shrubs.
Liriodendron has a beautiful common name, the tulip tree, that conjures up pictures of trees covered in bright red tulips.
The autumn colour on golden ash tree, Fraxinus excelsior ``Jaspidea'' is impressive enough alone.
