Durbanville Rose Garden

The Durbanville Rose Garden was established by Linda and Dick Lidner, who planted the first roses in 1979 and started the trail garden in 1981. The garden in Durbanville Avenue is on part of the old wine farm, Eversdal, which belonged to the Schabort family, who agreed to lease the land to the Western Cape Rose Society on condition the family’s graveyard be situated in the garden. The 3.5 hectare garden includes 500 varietals and 4 500 rose bushes.
