‘Colour My World’

Spring Festival 2017 


‘Colour My World’


28 July to September 3

Spring means new life, new energy and a fresh start for the garden. Trying out something new, or planning a new look, doesn’t necessarily mean starting from scratch. That’s the idea behind this year’s Spring Festival at Garden World, from Friday 28 July to Sunday 3 September.


Events at the Spring Festival

The spring festival programme of talks and workshops includes an afternoon of music and garden mayhem with Tanya Visser, Richard Cock and Paul Vonk, of Mayford Seeds presenting ‘In Tune with Nature’.

There are so many exciting events this year, from a 'Mother & Child Fun Day with a Flower Arranging Course' with Colleen McGillivray, to a 'Makeover with Hannon', the Glam Guru, and a cooking demo with Johan 'Panda' du Preez.

Check out the events schedule below and be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.



Nothing smells or tastes of the tropics quite like pineapple sage.

Pineapple Sage FlowersPineapple Sage FlowersAmong the most intriguing of the sage family members, pineapple sage is simply spectacular in late summer when in full bloom, with its masses of tubular blood red flower spikes contrasting perfectly against the bright green, fuzzy leaves. And, if you are mad about collecting herbs you are sure to have at least one plant growing somewhere in your garden or in a pot, just for the pleasure of brushing against it, or grabbing and crushing a leaf as you pass by to inhale the refreshing scent.  Nothing smells anything like the sweet, soft pineapple fragrance that this herb imparts.

Nothing adds tropical ambiance to gardens or indoor spaces like the lush evergreen and dramatically lobed leaves of philodendrons.

Because of their low-growing and clumping growth habit, the dwarf varieties make handsome, low maintenance specimen plants for the garden and an ideal groundcover underneath large trees. If planted in large drifts they have a dramatic impact on large landscape areas like office parks, schools, colleges etc. The tree philodendron is only recommended for large gardens, where it can be used to great effect if combined artfully with other tropical plants. It can also be impressive if potted for use in large halls, malls, offices or homes.
