PHOWN in National Botanical Gardens2011-10-31 (160)
Many South African National Botanical Gardens have weaver colonies in summer. Below is a list of gardens (with a link to the SANBI web site which provides lots of useful information for each garden), followed by links to the weaver colonies in the gardens (or in the relevant town, if no weaver colonies have been recorded yet). If you have weaver colony records from a National Botanical Garden, please submit to PHOWN!
