Mayville Rose Garden

It was the wish of the benefactor Ms Nita Steyn that a rose garden be established at Mayville for the pleasure of visitors.

The garden was designed by Gwen Fagan in 1978 and a policy to plant heritage roses was adopted. The rose is one of the most ancient flowers and an attempt has been made to reflect something of its development towards the modern hybrid tea rose. Old varieties of shrubs, flowers and herbs are used for interplanting.
