Other Gardens, Collections and Nurseries

This young botanical garden was originally started in 1969, but lay low until 1990. It is found in the centre of Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. I visited in 2008.

It shares the entrance with The National Botanical Research Institute, which provide lots of information.

The first who meets the visitor is a well arranged and maintained shadow and rain-covered house for succulents.

The plants are divided into their natural habitat like winter rain.

This is a great way to get the names confirmed from ones wild plant encounters.

All plants in this house have nametags, and there are many tags in the large garden as well.

The garden have it's own nursery, and do sell small seed plants to the public.

The plants are found it the right stones and sand.

The 12 hectare large garden are not landscaped in all parts, but is
natural habitats for some interesting plants like Aloe littoralis.

There are a large system of walking trails, which leads around to the Pachypodiums,
 Aloes, Cyphostemmas and all the bushes, shrubs, bulbs and herbs.

Cyphostemma uter is among the plentiful succulents in the house.

All plants seems to be treated just as they like it. If you are on these parts of the world, it is surely a visit worth
