Open Gardens Meander 2017

Spring has sprung, and if you’re looking to enjoy the flowers in bloom or want to get a little inspiration for your own garden, then head to the Open Garden Meander 2017. And best of all, you’ll be contributing to a great cause. 

What Was It?

In the spirit of The Secret Gardens in Rotterdam, the Johannesburg Garden Club presents their Open Gardens Meander. Six distinct gardens in Houghton, Westcliff, Saxonwold, Parktown North, Parkhurst and Craighall Park will open to the public, offering the opportunity to view the stunning blooms spring brings to the city. Visitors will be inspired by each green space, which brings something unique in their plantings, size, layout and inspiration.

Each garden will also feature a plant sale with individual specialties including clivias, azaleas, clematis, irises, Nu-Leaf seedlings and Johannesburg Garden Club members’ own cultivated plants, along with a selection of wooden bird ornaments. Refreshments will be available at several of the gardens, giving visitors plenty of time to relax. All proceeds will be donated to the Johannesburg Child Welfare. You’ll receive your Open Gardens Meander map with the location addresses when booking your tickets. And just like Rotterdam, cycling between gardens is encouraged. Uber is a good alternative too.
