NOW in its third year, the Open Midlands Gardens (OMG) has 30 places for you to visit, appreciate and be inspired by, which began on 17 September and runs until 29 November.

The area includes Dargle and Warburg and more than one-third of the gardens are participating for the first time. The sponsor, Andrew Line, owner of Harcourts Hilton, said: “Much of my inspiration has come from the Open Midlands Gardens and I am often adapting ideas into my own garden. By sponsoring the event I hope the gardens on display will also encourage others to do the same.”

This year sees the introduction of the Fair Fell Flowers on Saturday 29 October at Yellowwood Café­, which includes the Midlands Rose Society’s annual rose show and a line-up of garden orientated speakers to encourage and advise . Plants will also be on sale.

Giving back to the community is an important aspect of the OMG and each year monies generated through the entry fees and contribution by Harcourts Hilton is donated to various charities.

Visit www.openmidlandsgar to find out more about the event, each of the gardens and which weekends they will be open.

Download the brochure from the website or visit your local nursery, or Hilton Harcourts. If you are planning to see them all buy a season ticket for R50, otherwise a single entry is R10. - Supplied.
