or: Hidden Gems of the Southern Suburbs (No. 1 in a series of n).

Another gardening-related post? Two in week? What’s going on?
But yes. Let’s not beat around the bush (no pun intended) here. You want plants or garden stuff and you’re in the Southern Suburbs, you go to the yellow and green S place. But if you’re going to do that, you’re also going to get ripped off. So why not rather support a small, family business which gives great service and charges fair prices?
No, this isn’t a sponsored post.
I heard about the Little Orchard Nursery via the grapevine (no pun intended) and today, needing some garden stuff, I gave it a go. Diagonally opposite Bridge Cycles off De Waal Road in Diep River (map), it’s tucked away just where the railway bridge starts to rise and you could be excused for missing it as you fly by (at 59kph). But you shouldn’t do that.
Pop in and find a small cafe, a kids’ play area, and plenty of healthy looking plants. I didn’t need much, but I got everything I wanted, it cost me much less than it would have done at you know where, and I was served with a smile and a chat.
So, next time you’re about to do a bit of gardening, rather head to the Little Orchard instead of you know where.
