Durbanville Rose Garden
Durbanville Rose GardenThis 3.5 hectare garden includes 500 varietals and
4 500 rose bushes. Visitors can enjoy the layout of hybrid teas along Drakenstein Street, beds of miniatures, a gazebo that includes the ‘Fairest Cape’ rose, a tea garden, beds of medal winners, antique roses planted around graves, floribundas near the parking and climbers and shrubs against the fence.

Four workers tend the garden, supplemented by additional gardeners on occasion, to tend to the watering, feeding and spraying. The ‘Friends of the Rose Garden’ club make a valuable contribution by donating their expertise and time.
