The South African exhibition which is annually displayed at the International Chelsea Flower Show, will this year also be coming to the Lowveld.
Usually it is recreated in the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, but from June 22 to 29 it will be replicated in the Lowveld National Botanical Garden, coinciding with Innibos.
Over the years SANBI has dominated at the International Chelsea Flower Show, winning 28 out of 29 gold medals.
Adding additional local flavour is that Leon Kluge, who grew up in Mbombela, is the renowned landscaper behind the South African exhibition. Growing up, plants were his toys and he has taken his trade internationally, regularly winning much-coveted industry awards. This year, to also celebrate the Lowveld National Botanical Garden’s 50th anniversary, Kluge agreed to share his creativity with the community which nurtured him.
Admission fees for the exhibition will be R55 per adult and R25 for children.
This is a perfect complement to the Innibos art exhibition titled “Inniblom” which will be showcased at the Innibos Art Oasis at the Laerskool Nelspruit Cultural Centre.
