Hermanus Flower Festival
HERMANUS FLOWER FESTIVAL 2019
Hermanus Botanical Society will be celebrating everything that the fynbos has to offer at the annual Flower Festival from Saturday 21st to Tuesday 24th September. The theme of “Fynbos 4 U” offers the opportunity to show how many ways the fynbos brings a sense of wonder, pleasure and enjoyment to each of us in our own very personal way.
The Flower Festival is held in the gardens of Fernkloof Nature Reserve, Fir Avenue, Hermanus and will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Saturday to Monday and from 9 a.m. to 2 pm on Tuesday.

Tickets can be booked on Quicket or can be purchased at the Gate of Fernkloof Nature Reserve on entry.
Senior citizens discounted tickets for Monday 23rd available on entry.
You can expect to see wonderful arrangements of fynbos flowers and around 400 labelled specimens in bloom. Hear how the gold award winning SA exhibit at the Chelsea Flower Show was put together from the designer Leon Kluge. Attend talks on many interesting theme-related topics from painting with aloe sap to making fynbos gin and much more. Make a Tussie Mussie posy, create your own Kokedama, interact with the owls and raptors and watch the snake handling skills of experts. Children can make their own creations from natural material to take home with them while you shop for interesting and unique products. Bunches of cut flowers will be on sale and indigenous fynbos garden plants can be purchased at discount prices. Relax with a glass of wine, home baked teas, light lunches or finger food on the move.
