Barrydale in Bloom

Welcome to the landing page of Barrydale in Bloom (BIB) aka "The Bloom". The Bloom is the Overberg village of Barrydale's annual garden show. Nestled along the slopes of the Langeberge's north facing aspects of the fertile, Tradouwshoek valley. Barrydale being in a convergence zone, on the edge of the Klein Karoo, gives rise to a pretty unique climate leading to beautiful gardens. In 2019's Bloom we saw the participation of some 18 Ou Dorp Garden spaces, 9 Township Gardens and 3 invigorated public garden spaces.


Bloom Project 2020


Our project for this year is the Barrydale High School Garden (See Project 2020 in the menu for more details) arising out of the theme of this year's Bloom : "Food Gardens!".


So whether you integrate your veggie's into your overall Garden scheme or you tend a seperate, and productive patch - we would like to see! Veggie Gardening forms part of an overall global locus and renewed interest amongst gardeners the world over in food security and the wise use of resources such as water and land.


Please visit our facebook group for ongoing interactions and updates. As we move closer towards the Bloom in October, please visit our site for more information regarding scheduling of events, talks, workshops and special items of interest!


See you at the Bloom!
