Rustenberg Open Garden 2022

Friday 28 October – Sunday 30 October

Rustenberg Manor House Garden

This is a large farm garden set in the surrounds of Cape Dutch buildings, with a spectacular mountain backdrop and wonderful views of the surrounding landscape. It is a garden with many mature trees and is essentially English in style with a strong focus on heritage roses and perennials. The space is divided into a series of rooms, each with a distinctive planting scheme and character. The sunken garden, vegetable garden and the almond walk are highlights.

Schoongezicht Manor House Garden

This garden is situated adjacent to the Schoongezicht manor house near the wine-tasting centre on the estate. Special features are the 200-year-old pergola running the length of the garden and a Chartres-style labyrinth set amongst the flower borders. The borders are filled with roses, foxgloves and many interesting perennials. The garden also features a wonderful pond and is divided using hedges and paths. The Simonsberg Mountain and the fields beyond provide the borrowed landscape.
