Welcome to Jason’s Garden of Remembrance

by on Oct.22, 2009, under The Garden

This blog has been started to update all our friends and clivia lovers all over the world on the progress of Jason`s Memory Garden. This garden was started by me as a project to involve the younger generation in the wonderful world of clivias and at the same time, honour the memory of my oldest son, Jason, 20 who  was tragically taken from us on 05/03/2009.

Jason was hit by a drunk taxidriver at a pedestrian crossing , while cycling back from class at NNMU. He died of complications a week later. Jason was a gentle, creative soul who was loved by everybody. This is my way of keeping his memory alive in gardens all over the world!

Seeds from the clivias in his Memory Garden will be donated yearly to all interested scholars and students all over the world.

This blog is a way of communicating with all recipients of his seed packets and to keep us updated on the progress of their plants, to help with any problems concerning the growing of their seeds , and just to be able to interact with other young clivia lovers from other parts of the world.

Seeds have been sent out to scholars and students in South Africa, America and Australia.

Seeds will be sent out yearly during August/September.

Contact us for any other info or if you would like to added to the list. Plants have been donated by a selection of clivia growers and all seeds will be marked when packed.

I hope this project will grow from strength to strength and I would like to thank all my family and clivia friends who have supported me on this project.
