In our southern tip of the world, the Winelands is changing into its winter coat; amber and ochre hues blanketing the picturesque landscape as the days grow shorter.
The guava orchard
Pick a ripe guava from the abundant avenue as you enter the garden gates. These rose-fleshed fruits are packed with vitamin C and can give you a boost before flu season!
Babylonstoren Healing Garden
The Babylonstoren Healing Garden is awash in fragrance, herbs, and healing flowers, thanks to the last balmy days of autumn. Seek out the lemon verbena to inhale, and marvel at the ruby red, chandelier-like flowers of the African sausage tree, or Kigelia africana, currently in its annual bloom.
Walk the Puff Adder
This is the final month of the succulent exhibition in the Puff Adder walkway. Enjoy the experience before the team tucks them away in their balmy Succulent House ahead of winter.
Freshly baked scones and tea in the Greenhouse
Share a sweet moment with your mom over a cup of tea and scones in the Greenhouse restaurant. They’ve added a host of new menu options alongside trusted favourites for you to enjoy.
Have you ever seen a quivertree?
While most of the garden settles in for its winter slumber, the Garden of the San is getting ready to bloom. Come and see the quivertree and aloes in bloom, before heading out along the stream to see some of the cycads bearing their first cones.
There is so much more to see and experience at Babylonstoren.
Do visit their website to find out more about their garden tours and workshops.
