With winter in full swing, now is the time to consider rejuvenating your home and garden. Find all the green inspiration you need at the first Garden Ideas market to be hosted at Simondium’s Country Lodge from 27-29 July 2018.
Home to the highly popular Vintage Ideas and Festive Ideas gift markets, Garden Ideas is a brand-new brain child for the owners of this charming lodge set in beautifully kept gardens between Paarl and Franschhoek. The market promises to be a verdant paradise with a large variety of plants and herbs, garden décor, fresh flowers, body products and loads of floral-inspired items. Exhibitors will share garden themes from the past, showcase current trends and provide insights into the gardens of the future.
Several experts will present informal talks on various aspects of gardening and the eco-system, including pruning practises, water-wise gardening and indigenous gardens.
The deli will be turned into a wholesome produce market with garden-fresh seasonal fruit, herbs and vegetables as well as home-made preserves, sauces and relishes. Market visitors can sit down and have a nourishing bistro style meal freshly prepared in the lodge’s restaurant.
Even kids can be part of the gardening fun with a dedicated garden area that will be both fun and educational.
The market will be open from 10h00 till 16h30 daily. Entrance costs R50 per adult, under 18s enter for free. Ample secure parking is available. For more information, contact 021 874 1046.
