What is Garden Day? Sunday, 9 October
Garden Day is a chance for people across the country to down tools and celebrate their gardens. Everyone can take part, regardless of the size of their gardens – rolling lawns, potted window sills, urban rooftops and patio planters – all are welcome.
Water the flower beds, trim the hedges, prune the plants, and start prepping the party menu. Garden Day 2022 is taking place on Sunday, 9 October, and the organisers want all South Africans to join in celebrating and showing off their gorgeous green spaces.
No matter the size or shape of your garden – whether you are surrounded by a humble windowsill of monstera deliciosa or a rambling tree-lined wilderness – everyone is encouraged to get involved by inviting their loved ones for a garden celebration.
As the official symbol of Garden Day, wearing a flower crown is a must. Make your own and once it’s good to go, pay tribute to your garden by hosting a celebration with neighbours, family, and friends. A treasure hunt, relaxed braai, fancy tea party, swanky sundowners, or lazy picnic… whatever works for you. All that is asked is that you show off your flower crown and share your celebration by tagging #GardenDaySA.
