We are currently revamping this area which used to feature plants from various geographical areas of southern Africa. The new area will focus on our four major collection regions including the Little Karoo, Great Karoo, Ceres Tanqua Karoo and the Worcester Robertson Karoo.
The Namibian bed is the only bed that will remain the same, as the welwitschia has a long taproot and cannot be transplanted.
The plant beds have been cleared and soil and rock from the regions have been brought in. The horticulturalists are hard at work collecting and cultivating new plant material.
