Garden World’s annual Spring Festival will be taking place from 27 July to 2 September. The theme of this year’s show is ‘A Sense of Place’.
It is all about capturing what makes a space unique – from the the mood, sense of identity, stirring of emotion to the imagination needed to capture that certain something that makes an outdoor space special.
The challenge given to the landscapers creating the 17 show gardens, is to design gardens with mood, atmosphere and personal style, that will tell a story and reflect a certain lifestyle.
The 2018 gardening trends, which lean towards a keen interest in succulents and other plants that are tolerant of dry conditions, indigenous gardening and healthy living/ edible gardening, will all be featured in this year’s show.
Garden World will also be featuring their very own exhibit for the first time this year. ‘A World in One Country’ will feature settings of flora from the Table Mountain National Park in the Western Cape, Coffee Bay on the Wild Coast of the Eastern Cape, the Arderne Gardens with its shady glades, romantic nooks and ponds in Claremont in the Western Cape and a farm scene in Namaqualand in the Northern Cape.
There will also be display gardens by Rand Water and the SA National Botanical Gardens as well as the popular children’s gardens.
The programme includes a variety of entertainment, workshops and talks. There will be a High Tea and talk by Sandy Roberts from the Margaret Roberts Herbal Centre, make-overs with the Glam Guru, Hannon Bothma, a paint workshop with Nadine Vosloo, container gardening with Johan Panda du Preez, a flower-arranging course with Ina Roodt, how to create a succulent garden in containers by John Sauer as well as a music morning with Anna Cilliers and Richard Cock.
The festival will be concluded with a Classic Car Show, featuring vintage cars, classic cars, muscle cars and much more – the perfect fix for the ultimate motor-head.
