Now in its fourth year, the Open Midlands Gardens (OMG) has over 30 extraordinary places for you to visit, appreciate and be inspired by from 17 September through to 3 December! The sponsor, Andrew Line, owner of Harcourts Hilton, commented “Much of my inspiration has come from the Open Midlands Gardens and I am often adapting ideas into my own garden. By sponsoring the event I hope that the gardens on display will also encourage others to do the same.”
This year sees, for the first time, all the gardens – both locally and nationally – being showcased in the Gardener produced Open Gardens of South Africa. It is available for purchase at local retailers or you can pick up a complimentary copy from Harcourts Hilton.
Giving back to the community is an important aspect of the OMG and each year the monies generated, over R120000, through the entry fees and contribution by Harcourts Hilton is donated to various local charities.
