SUNDAY TRIBUNE GARDEN AND LEISURE SHOW 2009
"SOUTH AFRICA'S CHELSEA ON YOUR DOORSTEP"
The Gardner Magazine writes that the 34th Sunday Tribune Garden & Leisure Show, presented by The Royal Agricultural Society of Natal, will take place at the Royal Showgrounds, Pietermaritzburg, from 25 to 27 September 2009.
Gardeners and outdoor enthusiasts from all over the country will be privy to the latest landscaping techniques, new plants and magnificent feature gardens, many of which are sponsored by corporate and municipal role players.
With the 2009 theme being Hip and Happening, the garden designs are expected to range from the practical to the surreal and, without exception, to be inspiring and elicit that “wow” response from the audience.
The show also affords garden clubs and schools with an opportunity to display – by way of mini gardens – the extraordinary talent and technique of both the enthused and amateur eye, with the Chelsea-mentored judges of recent years frequently expressing their amazement at the sheer brilliance of our youngsters.
Only 45 minutes from greater Durban and Mooi River, and a leisurely four and a half hour drive from Gauteng, the show is conveniently located in the heart of the scenic midlands, in KwaZulu-Natal’s capital, Pietermaritzburg, and just one kilometer off the N3.
