Open Gardens 2018 – Rietfontein – KZN
October 26, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Patty and Sam van Zyl
Rietfontein, home to Sam and Patty van Zyl and their four daughters, is set in the valley of the Bounepartes district. Roses inhabit almost every nook of this colourful garden, and foxgloves and agapanthus flourish beneath large gum and other trees. A beautiful dam adds to the tranquillity of the place, and a wellstocked rose nursery makes inspiration reality for those visiting.
Directions: Travel along the Cedarville road from Kokstad for 12km and turn left at the Bounepartes road. Travel for about 6km, taking the first road to the left, and travel 2km to the end of this road. (It is a farm road and smaller cars will have to negotiate carefully.)
GPS: S 30 32.408, E 29 14.765
Why visit: Colourful and park-like. Patty has a rose nursery with well over 1000 roses of all varieties, which will be on sale.
Time to view: 1 hour
