About The Long Garden
Stretching down a long erf, this garden was designed by Franchesca Watson.
A lawned path meanders down the length of the space through plantings that are initially formal and melt progressively into a ‘natural’ garden, with an increasing number of indigenous plants.
The flow ends in a lawn surrounded by grasses against a 'wall' of reeds.
Access to the kitchen garden with its raised beds is through a moon gate.
There are plants for sale during the Garden Festival and the entry fee is R20
