Growing the Indigenous Forest at the Botanical Gardens

Growing the Indigenous Forest at the Botanical Gardens - Precious Tree Project

The Botanical Gardens in George has been slowly re-establishing an on-site indigenous forest on their grounds. PTP and its very important volunteer planters, gathered together in December for a final tree planting session of the year and planted out 40 indigenous trees – adding to the newly established mini forest the Botanical Gardens set up earlier on in the year with help from GreenPop.

Hot, dry conditions on the day did not make planting easy and the stone-hard ground made digging the holes pretty challenging. But in true style, our enthusiastic volunteers got stuck in, dug the holes and gave these precious trees a new home! Earthworm juice & compost was added to boost growing conditions and assist these newly planted trees until they fully established themselves in the ground.
