There’s some gardening fun for everyone at this year’s Autumn Garden Show from 5th – 7th April, at the Herb Farm in Midrand.

Take a stroll through the picturesque herb garden, a vibrant celebration of the senses with bursts of colourful roses and blooms, and the heady scents of herbs. Enjoy an educational Herb Tour through the spiral labyrinth garden, admire the spectacular orchids on display, taste heirloom tomatoes in a variety of colours from every corner of the globe, and listen to free talks and demos from gardening celebrities, sponsored by Atlantic Fertilisers.

Explore the shopping avenues filled with plants, crafts and gardening goodies and stop for a botanical gin at the MayFord Gin Garden, a spot of lunch or a cup of tea in an enchanting setting.

Kids Gardening Activities 

Bring the kids along to the Starke Ayres Kids’ Zone.  A safe and secure environment where they can participate in a variety of interactive, fun and educational gardening activities.

The Starke Ayres team will be offering free planting demos for children.  A fun and interactive gardening activity where children will learn how to plant seeds, take their pot plant home and watch it grow.   There will also be a daily colouring in competition where children stand a chance to win a wonderful prize from Starke Ayres.
