The Herb Farm

ALL the plants in this Garden, whether they are trees, shrubs, ground covers, climbers, annuals, succulents, no matter how large or small – ALL are herb plants.

Herbal plants have beneficial properties of one kind or another, which you will discover as you walk through the gardens.

This garden began its life in 2006. Each year a new section has been added. It is estimated that it now contains over 450 types of herb plants.

There is no other garden of its kind like this in Southern Africa – a true botanic gem nestled in the heart of Gauteng.

Autumn has arrived and the planting season is here. Caramel and copper leaves flutter in the crisp morning breeze. The heady scent of fresh herbs is carried on chilled air.

What better way to get new ideas and inspiration than with a visit to The Autumn Garden Show at The Herb Farm, Summit Road, Midrand from 20 – 22 April 2018?

Wander around the exclusive herb garden, an enchanting place filled with the fragrance of beautiful plants arranged in spirals, formal beds with statues and fountains, roses in rounds and flowering gems lining the pathways. Enjoy a cup of tea or a refreshing botanical gin cocktail on the deck, stop for a leisurely lunch, or take a stroll along the avenues to shop for captivating plants and all things gardening.

Presented by The Gardener, Die Tuinier, Grow to Eat magazines and The Herb Farm, this event is not to be missed.
