Gardens: The gardens exemplify the beauty and serenity of Hogsback and are approximately 4 ha in extent, and the owners justifiably take great pride in them. Nursery: Find frost hardy shrubs and trees from the garden, many of which are relatively rare in South Africa and not readily found in large commercial nurseries. There is in particular a good variety of deciduous azaleas.
