Hi Sue
We do not publish any addresses to the open gardens on any website for security reasons. We issue a map to the people who come to the expo and have paid their R20 entry fee. If the addresses were freely available, people go directly to the gardens at all hours and other than the weekend that they are officially open. So to respect the garden owners this is our policy. All the gardens are in close proximity to the expo so there is no great inconvenience to those wanting to visit them.
The styles and sizes of open gardens ranges from extra large farm style with ducks, birds and water, to medium contemporary, themed garden with succulents to tiny townhouse garden. The expo venue is also an open garden as well as another corporate business garden. Hope this answers your questions. Just come! Z

Good morning Zelda
If we just want to browse around the gardens is there any need to book or can we just pay the entry fee upon arrival?
