ASHLEY & STRUAN STANFORD

Tel: 076 522 7135

This is a small farm garden approximately half an hectare, surrounding a “modern” old Victorian house. The house stood empty for many years and was once used to store Graeme’s maize crop!! Peta Stanford designed the original layout of the garden with simple lines, and garden “rooms”. For the last four years Ashley and Struan have simplified the plant palette to an unfussy green, white and grey garden.  This is not a traditional garden – it is made up of manicured hedges, garden rooms and there is a lot of structure to the garden, yet it is still free flowing enough for two energetic little boys. Struan and Ashley have a passion for their vegetable gardening and have a large organic potager which provides a constant supply of fresh vegetables throughout the year, with the hope to be fully sustainable from the vegetable garden in the next two years. The garden is still evolving and improving with the recent establishment of a berry orchard, fruit tree orchard and a revamp of an old derelict dairy into Struan’s horse stables.

During the day, Lemonade and berry juice will be available.  Wine tasting will take place in the afternoons and wines from GROOTE POST will be available from a table manned by the Shamrocks.

 

Kita from Homestead Decor will be there with her rugs.

Jess from SeedStore will be displaying her gorgeous hand painted clay pots.

Some ‘previously loved’ furniture will be on display in the old brick garage by Corrine Bekker’s ‘Ye Old Shoppe’
