This year’s exciting theme at the Hermanus Flower Festival will be ‘Plant explorers, then and now’. The festival will take place from the 25th to 28th September at the Fernkloof Reserve. Exhibition spaces within the hall will recreate the world of the early traveler amazed at the floral wealth to be discovered in this area, and will contrast 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 amphitheater 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 with children under 12 welcomed free.
