Witness Gardens: Pellews’ open again

2010-10-15 00:00

WELCOME rains have brought relief to many of the open gardeners who are expecting a bumper weekend of visitors. Gardens throughout the city, Hilton, and Midlands area will be open once again — including Home Lodge, the garden of Vic and Dawn Pellew, who have extended their open garden to include this weekend.

Visitors to the gardens can expect to find unusual plants for sale, teas and light lunches at several of the gardens.

Milestone Forest, a national heritage site in Balgowan, encourages visitors to bring picnics and to enjoy the new tree walk that has been developed by the Balgowan conservancy.

The gardens are open from 9 am to 5 pm and most ask for a small donation to a charity of their choice. Log on to The Witness website: www.witness.co.za for a full listing, or contact Gail at 082 445 2577 or gail@spottedowl.co.za.

Brochures are available at garden centres as well as at Berry’s Mowers and Pools in Peter Kerchhoff street.
