Zone Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa | Anonymous added on October 14, 2019 | Answered

Good day, I live in Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa. This area is known for its warm temperate climate with dry winter. For +/- 9 months we have a warm climate with rainfall usually during the late afternoons. Temperatures vary during the main summer months from 22-38 degrees Celsius. Winter whilst dry hardly ever goes below 0 degrees Celsius and is at its coldest for about only two months of the year. I am interested in starting a herbs for food and medicinal purposes. I am new to gardening but an avid learner so I would prefer to make use of herbs that are well known, for research purposes. I would really appreciate your help and I am so happy I discovered this site. Thank you kindly Tamsin van Jaarsveld
