LEARN MORE ABOUT HISTORICAL ROSES AT BOSCHENDAL HIGH TEA
Visiting Boschendal’s internationally acclaimed Rose Garden behind the Manor House is one of the unique activities open to the public at this historic Cape Dutch Farm. It was designed by Gwen Fagan and features many of the original roses cultivated in the Cape and East Indies.
Lovers of roses are invited to spend a morning with our landscape architect Jan Blok, who is passionate about restoring and upgrading the gardens and will share his experience with gardening fans.
Find out more about the heritage roses and modern varieties present in the garden, the care and propagation of this important part of Boschendal’s history and ask all the questions you’ve always wanted answered. Buy some roses and place orders for specific varieties to be propagated in future.
Then enjoy high tea, courtesy of Executive Chef Christiaan Campbell and his pastry team who will make use of seasonal produce from our Food Garden and surrounds, to produce a feast. Live background music and a glass of wine will round off a perfect garden celebration.
We have three dates planned; Friday, 13 November OR Saturday, 14 November OR Sunday, 15 November, all from 10h30. The cost per person is R240, which includes welcome drink, music, the rose garden talk and high tea).
