The official dates for Benvie Open Garden were set earlier in the year to accommodate the supplement in the Gardener Magazine covering open gardens country wide.
Our official dates are opening 22nd September running through to the 7th October and we are open every day of the week from 9am to 4pm. We have had some nice rain in August and the Clivias are opening now and should be in full bloom by the end of this week. The early Azaleas are also out and should you wish to visit anytime from this weekend (8th September) you are welcome to do so.
As per usual you are welcome to bring a picnic lunch and to bring friends and family.
The entry fee remains the same at R50 for adults and children are free, for pensioners a reduced entry fee of R30 will apply on all Thursdays.
Hope to see you over open garden.
John and Jenny Robinson.
John Geekie established the garden on Benvie Farm in 1882. It is a historic 70 acre garden situated in the Karkloof mistbelt. John & Jenny Robinson are the custodians of Benvie on behalf of the Geekie family.
