Hot new chilli range

New finger limes

Just in time to add a dash of something different to summer drinks and desserts, the very exciting ‘California Sunrise’ finger lime. They are roughly the size of a person’s index finger and contain round juice pearls that resemble what we like to call ‘citrus caviar’. Juice bursts from the citrus pearls when bitten into and has a fresh lemon-lime flavour. The finger lime pearls can be used anywhere in place of a lemon or lime, such as appetizers, drinks, main dishes and desserts. They are especially good with seafood. Plant them in the garden or in pots in full sun to semi-shade where they will produce fruit all year round. Find yours exclusively at Lifestyle Home Garden or shop online at https://lifestyle.co.za/

An emerald tomato for summer

The new F1 hybrid Tomato ‘Emerald’ has just been released by MayFord Seeds for sowing this spring for a summer harvest. This tomato has uniform fruit of good quality on an excellent yielding plant that matures early (60 – 65 days after planting) and is also perfect for sauces and salsa. ‘Emerald’ has blocky fruit on plants with good leaf cover which protects the fruit exposed to the sun, and they have intermediate resistance to bacterial wilt disease.


Summer fly control

Protek Fly Bait proved its worth in the existing 200g shaker, but customers also requested a smaller container to suit their smaller living spaces. Fly Bait is now also available in the itsy bitsy 100g shaker. It is ready to use and can be applied as a dry bait, scatter bait or as surface spray and paint on.


For the Perfect Edge

Achieving that perfect garden edge has never been easier. PermaEdge garden edging is a durable, flexible and versatile solution to the edging of garden beds, lawn areas, tree rings, pathways and more!


Firefox Braais

Firefox braais are offered in a range of steels to match the braai to the environment it is going to be built into. In the Highveld (where the climate is drier) mild steel is a good choice for a braai located on a covered patio. At the coast or where the braai is located in the rain, rust-resistant steel such as 3Cr12 and stainless-steel are a better choice.

Firefox’s Table Braai is designed to be installed inside an existing brick chimney to provide a stylish and versatile braai option, or to be installed on a surface outdoors. Available in a choice of mild steel or various grade stainless steels, to suit the location. The shelf of the unit folds over the braai to waterproof it when not in use.
