At Ludwig Taschner’s nursery, north of Pretoria, everything is rosy – literally. From the sea of rose blooms that greets visitors to the rose-inspired menu served in the Spiced Coffee restaurant. Ludwig Taschner is a household name among the South African rose growing fraternity.
He popularised rose growing in South Africa after he successfully containerised rose plants. He has now turned his decades of rose growing and propagating expertise into an exhibition rose farm par excellence.
The nursery is exceptionally popular on weekends. Green-fingered gardeners come to scout for new rose varieties, or seek advice on rose growing. Families enjoy the outdoor gardens - and Ludwig’s caters for special occasions and weddings.
At any one time the farm has over 1 000 rose varieties on display, which can be enjoyed on a tractor ride through the nursery. The sight and scent of close to 1 million rose plants in bloom alone makes Ludwig’s worth visiting.
A shopping spree in the Thorns ‘n Things rose boutique to stock up on rose-flavoured gourmet goodies or rose-scented sprays, oils, potpourri and soft furnishings will ensure you depart Ludwig’s with a rosy outlook on life.
