Veld & Flora is a glossy, colourful and energising, the Botanical Society’s popular quarterly magazine Veld & Flora underwent a widely acclaimed redesign and makeover in 2019. Its invigorating features take readers out into the field with adventurous researchers and citizen scientists and urge readers to pursue their curiosity about southern Africa’s wealth of indigenous plants. Veld & Flora takes readers behind the scenes – onto mountains and shores, into labs and glorious indigenous gardens. It follows the contemporary trend for informing readers about environmental and scientific issues in plain English, showcasing the passion of our country’s plant enthusiasts and making for exciting and motivating reading in this era of climate crisis.
