The beautiful colour of the Pincushion, ranging from light yellow to deep orange, brightens up the most miserable of winter days.
Now available from the La Motte Farm Shop, they make for lovely cut flowers, work well as a potted plant and can be beautiful in your garden.
To get the most out of your plant, you need it to grow in an area with hot, dry summers and cold, wet winters. Then also ensure the following:
- Well-drained acid soil with low nutrient content.
- Good soil drainage and acid pH.
- Lots of sunlight.
- No extra feed.
- Water twice a week in summer.
If you are not lucky enough to live in the Cape Winelands where they are blooming at the moment, visit this Pinterest page for some beautiful pictures of fynbos.
