About The Long Garden

Stretching down a long erf, this garden was designed by Franchesca Watson.

The main spine of the garden is a grass path which leads you through  three different areas. The formal area has sunken ponds with water lillies and you can look through the moon gate to the raised beds of the vegetable  garden.  

The path meanders through swathes of soft planting and then  on to a South African version of prairie planting with mostly indigenous plants

Open from 8am to 5pm

There are plants for sale during the Garden Festival

Entry fee is R20
