Veld & Flora Hub

Discover more about southern Africa’s glorious and fascinating plants in Veld & Flora, the Botanical Society’s flagship publication! This colourful and inspiring magazine comes free to members once a quarter, making it one of the highlights of your BotSoc membership package. 

With Veld & Flora, you’ll go up cliffs, along rivers and into forests with southern Africa’s adventurous botanical researchers and citizen scientists. We’ll give you ideas for your indigenous garden and take you behind the scenes in laboratories and herbaria where southern African scientists are pushing forward the new frontiers of botany.

In this era of climate change and overconsumption, we bring you environmental and scientific debates in plain English. You’re invited to contribute to the discussion and to share your passion for our country’s plants with fellow members.
