About Free State Botanical Garden

The Free State National Botanical Garden is home to some 400 species of plants, mainly from the Free State, Northern Cape and Lesotho. A meandering paved path, perfect for the more elderly visitor and the physically disabled, takes one through the gardens, whilst the more agile can venture up the koppies.

The Free State Botanical Garden offers some magnificent examples of wild olive and karee trees, an orange blossom arbour and a petrified tree, thought to be over 150 million years’ old. For additional information please see Free State Botanical Garden. The garden’s nursery is also well worth a vist as they have a well-stocked supply of surplus indigenous trees, succulents, shrubs and bulbs and the Botanical Society arranges talks, sunset concerts during summer and moonlight walks.

Indigenous plants are on sale from Monday to Saturday and special plant sales are held annually, usually in September or October.
