Nursery & Restaurant
Garden World is a destination offering an outing for the whole family. We continue to seek innovative ideas to create a better garden atmosphere for our clients & continue to strive for even better quality products & service to our customers.
Various ‘readers’ days are arranged through numerous publications, offering readers an opportunity to meet the editors, enjoy a lecture on a gardening related topic, win numerous prizes and then stroll through the estate.
Well known personalities including, among others, Margaret Roberts, Ludwig Taschner & Lynton Johnson etc. are invited through various mediums to host talks and demonstrations on various subjects, these lectures taking place in our conference rooms.
We have a dedicated team of employees, from our knowledgeable Nursery Sales staff, the vibrant Banqueting & Tea Garden team, our Plant Wholesale section and Administration staff. Their hard work has led to great success & enormous growth.

Garden World is an unique Wedding Venue set within stunning gardens. Even the subtropical enclosed reception hall resembles an Eden. Filled with plants and subtle lighting emanating from the rippling azure water of the pool, the setting lends a romantic ambiance to the occasion. Garden World is a truly stunning and different banqueting experience, with superb catering to suit all tastes.
Garden World specialises in Garden Wedding Ceremonies, but we also offer an indoor Loft Chapel should it be cold or rainy on the day of your ceremony. Another option is our beautiful Patio Area that can be draped. We include a Red Carpet, White Garden Chairs, a Podium for your Minister, the Registration Table and you are most welcome to take photographs in our beautiful gardens. Garden World offers couples unequaled opportunities to photographically seal the memories of their special day in fairy glens and romantic gazebos. Garden World’s gardens are always well manicured with plenty of colour to capture those special moments.
Planning your wedding is certainly a daunting task. Use our Wedding Budget Planner and Checklist to assist you in planning this great event. If you are not well organised, you could very soon be lost in a maze of papers, addresses, phone numbers, tasks that you should have done, etc. Our checklist can be saved to your own computer, printed or filed away.
Garden World offers Bridal Couples a wide selection on menus to accommodate various tastes. Each couple can make up their own menu or adjust our basic menu to suit your budgetary requirements. We also cater for special dietary meals for guests including Vegetarian, Halaal and Kosher. Special children's menus are also available on request. Garden World can assist with a Food Tasting. You are welcome to bring your own wine and drinks to the venue.
