Jessie Waltons Keurbos Garden

This article details a visit done by the Stellenbosch Horticultural Society to the wonderful garden of
Jessie Walton (Keurbos Nursery) near Elgin in the Western Cape.

Jessie Walton has a wonderful carefree garden, it was not quite in full spring bloom yet, but had plenty of gems to look at.
Jessie specializes in Vireya Rhododendrums, many of which were in full bloom, and on sale in her nursery. 

The indigenous area was looking wonderful, as was the woodland area. And there were even some roses already in bloom.

You can find some interesting plants to buy in her KEURBOS NURSERY, which has recently been expanded - well worth a visit!

Jessie is the daughter in law of the famous Gwen Fagan - the author of the well know book, Roses of the Cape. A must read for anyone interested in the history of heritage roses.

This garden is normally open as part of the Elgin Open Gardens - see EVENTS
