Experience The Herb Garden

The Herb Farm

ALL the plants in this wonderous 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.

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.
