This will be held from Thursday 25 September to Sunday 28 September at the Fernkloof Nature Reserve.
This year’s exciting theme will be “Plant Explorers; Then and Now”. Exhibition spaces within the hall will recreate the world of the early traveller, amazed at the floral wealth to be discovered in this area. This will be contrasted with the techniques used in the discovery of new plants, still taking place, where records are kept using digital photography and global positioning.
Hundreds of local flower specimens will be displayed and named, and indigenous flower bunches and plants will be for sale. Within the marquee, local interest groups, craft and food stalls will be found, while small show gardens light up the amphitheatre lawns.
There are plenty of activities planned for the children. And delicious teas and lunches will be available throughout the festival.
Entrance fees are R20, Children, under 12, free
