Margaret became unwell about 3 weeks ago and was admitted
for surgery that was necessary but expected to be relatively
routine. Her condition complicated and further surgery was
required. Despite a brave fight, she did not recover. The
family did not wish to name the hospital, but expressed
appreciation to its doctors and staff.
At 79, Margaret was absolutely not ready to go. She was in
the middle of 3 new books with her daughter, Sandy, and had
a number of new projects on the go at their amazing farm,
the Margaret Roberts Herbal Centre.
With over 50 years in natural healing and over 40 titles,
she was an inspiration to many - a national treasure.
Margaret's daughter, Sandy, who has been in business with
her for 30 years will continue their work at the Herbal
Centre in De Wildt, so that Margaret's legacy continues for
generations to come. "
The Margaret Roberts Herbal Centre has,
in it's 30 years of existence, expanded into its full
potential and beauty .

exceptional place, designed to teach all about herbs,
