Sharondale Garden Centre
We had to add Sharondale Garden Centre to the list to make sure that we give you nothing but the best. It has been a family run and owned nursery for four generations and is considered one of the oldest nurseries in the city. So, yes, they know their plants pretty well. They are located in the south of Jozi, in Alberton. When you pop-in for a visit make sure you have a bite at their lovely coffee shop called Wendy's Cafe.
