WE don't have a big garden. In fact, not even a garden at all. But living in the urban environs of Cape Town, we are able to grow lots of things in pots on our stoep - from aloes, to rosemary and lavender, to various kinds of cacti. Hibiscus, avinca, fragrant frangi-pani and some fynbos also do well in the pots. After soft spring rain, our humble pot-garden becomes a feast of colour and texture. There is beauty in the small things...and soon the bees, the butterflies and the small birds will come.
