Outing to Durban Country Club
Near Durban Beachfront
Saturday, 27 October 15:30 for 16:00
Talk: Responding to the Polyphagous Shot-hole Borer infestation
Monday 29 October 17:30 to 18:00
Venue: Visitors Centre, Durban Botanic Gardens
Horticultural Consultant Johan Bodenstein tells us about this new threat to our trees and what to do about it. The tiny pest has reached Durban and is responsible for mysterious fungal die-offs of trees, from indigenous forest trees to avocados. Symptoms are different in different tree species. You may bring live samples of suspected afflicted twigs for examination so long as they are in sealed plastic bags. Horticulturists, landscapers, estate managers and gardeners should find this talk especially useful.
Entrance: Members R30, Non-members R50, Students/learners R20. Includes teas at the start.
