    Flower Valley Farm – visit our fynbos wonderland
    17th August 2018
    Fynbos is the main vegetation type of the Cape Floral Kingdom – one of only six floral kingdoms in the world, and it’s the smallest and richest of the kingdoms. About three quarters of fynbos species are endemic to their area – in other words, they grow nowhere else in the world. Fynbos grows in nutrient-poor soil, thereby creating entire ecosystems where many other vegetation types would not survive. Fynbos provides life for many animal and bird species, like the beautiful Cape sugarbird, (which is endemic to fynbos regions), and many types of very threatened butterfly species. Fynbos plants, like other plants, mark the beginning of the life-providing oxygen cycle.
