Una van der Spuy is 98 years old and she just published another book about gardening – her own garden in fact, at Old Nectar in Stellenbosch. one of the most beautiful gardens in the country, and the only private garden to be declared a national monument. still working in your garden at 98, let alone writing a book about it, is just incredible – i would love to meet her & see her amazing garden one day. the book is Old Nectar: a garden for all seasons
