Paying a visit to a garden that is uninteresting or unkempt is highly frustrating – we will therefor have less gardens, but consistent high quality. Our aim is to recognize (and encourage) a high standard of gardening in George and district ; to bring the ‘garden’ into the forefront in our part of the Garden Route.
The four aspects on which gardens will be judged for inclusion is creativity, design, planting and maintenance. The anchor gardens must be of such that a visitor can be kept engaged for 30 minutes or longer.
We will strive to facilitate a high quality event that educates and inspires gardeners and garden enthusiasts.
Garden Categories that we would like to include:
1. Town Gardens
2. Further afield: District Gardens (on farms, smallholdings etc.)
3. Speciality Gardens (like Clivia, orchids, bonsai, indigenous etc.)
4. Vegetable gardens
5. Botanical gardens
6. Developing gardens
7. Magnificent trees
