Schotia afra (100 seeds)


5 in stock

Schotia afra (Fabaceae) Karoo boer-bean. It is a small tree, evergreen, with rigid branches and a gnarled trunk. The flowers are numerous, bright red to pink in color, and are borne in small clusters during the months of February and March. They are distributed throughout the tree. Sowing : Sow in a semi-shady area (about 40% shade). Seeds should sown in well-drained, loamy soil. The general rule for the sowing depth is the same as the thickness of the seed (about 3-5mm). Sow the seeds in late spring. Water well once a day. Make sure the seeds are not crowded in the pan (this should prevent damping off). Locality: Barrydale. Harvest: August 2023
