In 2017 there will be 18 open gardens in the Elgin and Bot River districts over two weekends. These range from large established country gardens (some over 50 years old), to young, recently planted gardens in villages and on smallholdings, all in a setting of great natural beauty an hour’s drive from Cape Town.
This is the 16th year of the Elgin Open Gardens scheme. Here in the uplands of the Western Cape, we pride ourselves on the range of plants we can grow in the heavier soils of this cooler and wetter area, in a part of the country also renowned for its fynbos, its fruit and wines, and its nurseries.
