This year, 21 gardens (the most ever) will compete for best on show and this includes the work of 12 landscapers who are participating for the first time.
Internationally recognised designers Ray Hudson and David Davidson have once again designed this year’s Kirstenbosch South Africa Chelsea Exhibit and this will be re-created by them at Garden World.
There will be an even greater emphasis on water wise gardening this year, with display gardens from Rand Water, and Sanbi’s two flagship botanical gardens, Walter Sisulu and Pretoria.
The spring festival programme of talks includes the ever-popular Margaret Roberts on herbs, a mother and child flower arranging workshop with Interflora, trendy ways to upcycle and recycle, and a morning of music and garden mayhem with Tanya Visser, Richard Cock and Paul Vonk, of Mayford Seeds presenting ‘In Tune With Nature’.
Other annual attractions at the festival are the school gardens, children’s box gardens, and floral exhibits of the Gauteng Flora Union and Interflora.
Garden World is on Beyers Naudé Drive in Muldersdrift.
