Poor soil in the Western Cape is not a problem, it is more of a blessing. There is a massive variety of species to plant, as most of the Peninsula is made up pf the Cape Flats which is all sand! The Flats support a huge variety of fynbos and coastal fynbos giving the Cape Town gardener a fantastic selection. The simple answer is – obey you soil. Dont try and plant things that want rich composted soils. Stick to the species that enjoy the well drained sandy soils. Contact the nursery for a comprehensive list.
