Herb Happening 2015

The Herbal Happening is making its return after 5 years due to an overwhelming request from the public to host this event and make the unique gardens available to visit. This event creates the opportunity for all people that loves gardening, herbs and vegetable growing to come together and share their passion and be inspired.

What to expect:

This vast Herb Garden has been created with the express purpose to  showcase the incredible range of herbal plants that we have at our disposal. 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 10 years ago. 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.
