Connect with a little magic

The village of McGregor, in the mountains of the Western Cape, has always done things differently, and that extends to its new garden festival, called McGregor Magic. ‘It goes beyond garden graces and cream teas,’ says Heidi Muller. ‘It’s embracing more of nature’s magic.’

In addition to the 30-plus gardens on show, McGregor Magic offers things like a storytelling tree-climbing performance, a secret garden of poetic clues and a medicinal plant walk with a shaman. Find out who wins the veggie ‘grow-off’, learn to make herbal insect repellent, taste wildflower gin and enjoy the brilliant acoustics of a cement reservoir garden (a venue for live music). Various prices. 21–23 September.

Prize includes:

  • 2-night stay for 2 sharing at the Fountain Place guest house (subject to availabilty) with B&B
  • 2 bottles Six Dogs gin, tour plus private tasting with the distiller
  • Private tour of Karoo Desert Garden (Entry & tour) plus voucher for plant sales
  • 1 hour outride for 2

Prize excludes transport to McGregor.
