Cussonia gamtoosensis (Araliaceae). The Gamtoos cabbage tree is an attractive multi-stemmed shrub which bears grey foliage and grows up to 4 meters. It grows well in cultivation. Sowing : Seed sown in summer months will germinate faster (in about 4 weeks) than seed sown in winter (7 weeks to germination). Make sure seed trays are at least 15 cm in depth to allow the small tubers to form. Do not allow seed to become waterlogged or dry out. Keep seed and seedlings in a semi-shaded area. Seedlings can be transplanted at about 4 months, but be very careful not to damage the fleshy roots when transplanting. Locality : Hankey. Harvest : June 2019.
