Open Gardens 2018 – Calderwood Hall – KZN
November 3, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Wade Coetzer, R617, Boston
The 30-hectare Calderwood Hall estate is surrounded by beautiful gardens with a gazebo and ornamental fountain, dams and forests. In keeping with the Edwardian style of the manor, the garden is well-manicured English style with standard ‘Iceberg’ roses lining the veranda and magnificent established trees shading the front lawn. Enjoy the expansive rolling lawn down to the dam and round to the function centre and chapel, which is covered in rambling ivy, with a beautiful koi pond overlooking the Drakensberg Mountains. The weeping willow and ferns soften the path back to the house and the succulents add interest. Mass displays of colour are put on by a variety of annuals.
Directions: Take exit 99 (Howick South/Underberg) on the N3, turn left at the junction and head in the direction of Underberg. The garden is 31km from the turnoff, on the right hand side, before you reach Boston.
