Hi there! I’m Marcelle

I started the SA Garden Guide because I found it difficult to find a single page that contained all the information I needed to care for my plants.

I hope to expand this list and help all gardeners grow.

A thriving garden is achieved by understanding your plants' needs.

That’s why the SA Garden Guide focusses on compiling a comprehensive guide of the needs and care of each plant that can be found in South African gardens.
