Hosted by the Royal Agricultural Society of Natal and sponsored by the Witness, The Garden Show has become a spectacular event, not only on the regional and national calendar, but since 2005, also internationally.
The Witness Garden Show
Since 2015, The Witness Garden Show has been managed jointly between The Royal Agricultural Society of Natal and Lonehill Trading – the publishing company run by Tanya Visser of The Gardener magazine and TV show. The show has been revamped and includes more variety for the visitor including a large pet section and the Spirit of Spring Canine Spectacular which includes breeding championships and dog agility. The Floral Fashion Show started in 2016 is becoming a yearly event with talented floral artists creating living designs for the ramp. There is something for the whole family with the Mom, Tots and Pops expo included in the line-up where the kids can play while their parents shop. Beautiful feature gardens and plants for sale, floral art, cake decorating, arts and crafts, quilting and 150 commercial exhibitors. You can also watch free demos and talks on a variety of subjects, go for a drive on the 4×4 track, take in some orchestral and local music, get fed at the gourmet food hall or grab a bite at the Heritage braai area and relax on the terrace while watching the antics of the dogs on the arena. Don’t miss it!
