Sanitas Nursery and Tea Garden has been the best stress relieving weekend time out location for most people for the past several years. ?As a commercial entity, this gracious garden of simplicity has a fresh flower shop, which sparks off a scent like freshly pressed flowers or drips of scented oil. ?It offers a wide range of exotic and exquisite flowers like your classical bunch of roses indigenous in-house plants, such as dwarfed cactus plants in one creatively designed corner, including a variety of clay pots, bird baths and feature fountains to choose from.?Sanitas showcases a unique and true example of dedication, hard work, intense amounts of labour and determination, which is showcased on the actual horticultural energy that surrounds this precious, lawn-less, beautifully built bird friendly garden.
Well contained in this natural, open spaced green paradise is a splendid view of a massive collection of lovely, brown clay pots that are shaped in different sizes, textures, colours, including oriental plants, different forms of leafs, and wealth of colour with shades ranging from red to purple, pink, yellow and blue, displayed neatly along the paved surroundings and smoothly curved kerfs of this mysterious, magical and impressive garden.
A lot of attention must be paid to the clear distinction between the intermingling garden enthusiasts but fundamentally, the magical sounds and striking communication between the flowing water, chirping birds, daisies, violets and blooming marigolds which reward you with a natural sense of being and soul satisfaction as you take a wide glance at the wood barks, polished stones and neatly clipped topiaries.
As you move along, Sanitas garden offers an extensive and indeed delightful range of indigenous plants.
If you listen carefully, which you are bound to do, since you are in a quiet surrounding, you can hear the soothing presence of water, calmly trickling down wonderfully built fountains and features in all corners like a chill going down your spine, giving this mysterious atmosphere a touch of life. ?As you venture deeper down this realistic mirage of plant paradise, there is a Tea Garden restaurant beneath a cool, breezy Gazebo that is similar to a tropical island bar, uniquely tucked away amongst tall palm trees.
Upon seating, guests are treated to a complimentary free glass of thirst quenching lemon juice with ice.
The restaurant serves a variety of freshly picked salads as starters, to a scrumptious sizzling steak and chips as a main course, not forgetting their wide range of ice-creams or tasty smoothies for desert.
“One thing I love about this place is that children can interact with each other at the jungle gyms,” said Tshepiso Magano.
“It’s a nice place to spend time with the kids because I come here to remove my hangovers, so the whole family has something fun to look forward to.”
He added that the man made botanical garden can be a good place out of the house for the whole family.
