Kirstenbosch Garden Fair. The Botanical Society’s annual Garden Fair and plant sales will be held at the Stone Cottages, corner Rhodes/Kirstenbosch Drives, opposite the main entrance to Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden.
Entrance: R5 for Kirstenbosch Partnership Fund (children under 12 free).
This annual fundraising event supports Kirstenbosch development projects and is a showcase for South Africa’s indigenous flora especially grown to offer gardeners a unique opportunity to acquire a wide range (some 500+ species) of trees, Proteas, shrubs, Buchus, herbaceous perennials, succulents, Ericas, Restios, bulbs, Cycads, etc. and other rare and unusual plants for collectors.
NB. Bring your own carrier bags / wheelbarrow !
‘Celebrating Trees & Shade Plants’ will be the theme around which the Demonstration Garden will be designed and set up by Kirstenbosch horticulturists who will be on hand throughout the Fair to offer advice and assistance.
Exhibitors will offer garden-related products and services, refreshments will be available at the Tea /Wine/Beer Garden under the oak trees, and there will be musical performances on both days of the Fair.
The handbook/catalogue (R10,00) will be available from early March from the Botanical Society Bookshops at both the Visitors’ and Garden Centres, Kirstenbosch Gardens, and from the Kirstenbosch Branch office, Stone Cottage no. 1, Kirstenbosch Drive, Newlands.
