- Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is one of Monty Don’s favourite gardens
- He says it has a spectacular sense that everything is where it should be
- Monty recommends visiting early morning when the garden is fresh and cool
Over the past decade I have visited Cape Town in South Africa on three occasions and I hope to do so many more times yet. No matter how often I go I will always head straight to one of my favourite gardens in the world – Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. The best time to go is between November and February, covering the southern spring and summer.
