19/20 MARCH 2005

The Botanical Society's 30 th annual Garden Fair and plant sales will be held at the Stone Cottages, corner Rhodes/Kirstenbosch Drives, opposite the main entrance to Kirstenbosch Gardens.

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, bulbs, Cycads, etc. and other rare and unusual plants for collectors.

Exhibitors will offer garden-related products and services, refreshments will be available at the Tea and Wine Garden under the oak trees, and there will be musical performances on both days of the Fair.

This year's Demonstration Garden, to be landscaped by Kirstenbosch horticulturists and students, will feature plants with fragrance. Kirstenbosch horticulturists will be on hand throughout the Fair to offer advice and assistance.

The handbook/catalogue will be available from early March from the Botanical Society Bookshops at the Visitors' Centre and Garden Centre, Kirstenbosch Gardens, and from the Kirstenbosch Branch office, Stone Cottage no. 1, Kirstenbosch Drive, Newlands.

Entrance: R5 for Kirstenbosch Development Fund (children under 12 free).

Community Chest Western Cape is acknowledged for their generous support of this annual event.
