Open Gardens of South Africa 2021

It’s with great pleasure that we include 88 gardens coming up in the Spring issue of The Gardener magazine at the Open Gardens of South Africa 2021. After last year’s cancellation of many open garden events, it is encouraging to see so many gardens opening up this year. Most open garden programmes are fundraisers for local charities, and these have suffered financially during the current pandemic crisis. We welcome everyone back and wish you all a safe and successful season.

Our great appreciation goes to STIHL, who have sponsored the publication of Open Gardens of South Africa for many years and continually supports open gardens events around the country including the Open Gardens of South Africa 2021. 

The comprehensive information that we have gathered will help you to plan your garden tours with ease, and we are sure that just being in one of these magnificent gardens during spring will be a joy.

We leave you with American gardening author Ruth Stout’s quote:

“I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose, I would always greet it in a garden.”
