Celebrate Garden Day!
Garden Day is a chance for people across the country to down tools and spend some quality time celebrating their gardens with neighbours, family and friends. Everyone can take part, regardless of the size of their gardens – rolling lawns, potted window sills, urban rooftops and patio planters – all are welcome.
There’s no denying it, throughout the year an enormous amount of effort goes into keeping and maintaining our gardens, which is why we think this deserves a proper celebration. Garden Day is a chance for South Africans to down tools, enjoy the diverse pleasures of their gardens and acknowledge the hard work that goes into keeping them special. From flower gardens, to greenhouses, waterwise patio planters and community gardens where cabbages and cauliflowers are king, South Africans from all walks of life are invited to celebrate their gardens no matter what size, shape or form on Garden Day.
Taking place on Sunday 20 October 2019, celebrate the joy and benefits that gardens bring to us all year round. Garden Day was proudly created by Candide – a gardening app that connects gardeners with fellow plant-lovers, public gardens, and Garden Centres. Most of the year we plant, water, weed, and mulch – work, in other words. Garden Day is a time to toss down that spade, invite family and friends around, kick back and celebrate your garden with them.
Anyone and everyone can take part, regardless of age, gardening experience or the size of your garden.
