Shepstone Garden

4th Jul 2020 - 5th Jul 2020


To all our loyal supporters and followers. It is with a heavy heart that we have had to cancel the next open garden in July. We will sadly not be opening another garden until 2021. We have handed over the funds received for this season to our recipient charities, CHOC and Woodrock Animal Rescue. Unfortunately they have lost out on several funds due to lockdown and covid-19 restrictions so please could you donate to these charities, they desperately need funds. The banking details are below. We hope you stay well, stay positive and keep gardening.
With thanks

Shepstone Gardens,

12 Hope Rd, Mountain View

Joburg’s Shepstone Gardens are a mix of verdant and intriguing concealed spaces. They are theatrical gardens filled with hidden treasures. The owner took  inspiration from 18th century English gardens, especially in terms of the views and different levels. It is about a sense of theatre, about not divulging everything at first glance.

A meander along the gently curving pathway reveals constant notes of surprise. For starters there’s very little lawn, but rather a series of glimpses that defy you not to explore. Cool, dark ponds, towering palms, hidden courtyards – each nook and hideaway demands that you pause a while.

Plantwise, this is a garden of contrast. Lofty ferns are underplanted with clivias and on the sunny inclines succulents create a blaze of colour.
