Evergreen beauty planted for Arbor Month

Rand Aid’s Thornhill Manor retirement village wasted no time in springing to it this Arbor Month. On September 1, the village planted a buddleia saligna, or false olive tree, which is fast growing, indigenous, and evergreen and has stunning flowers.

As is the case each year, the tree was generously donated by Servest, which also assisted with the digging of the hole, compost, fertiliser, and planting.

The Thornhill Manor Garden Club arranged for tea and cake to be served afterwards, and there were beautiful cuttings of crab apple displayed to bring a spring feel to the day.
