THE PLANT FAIR 2021 IS NOW CLOSED.
Rejuvenate your garden, by joining Cape Town’s biggest plant fair, the Kirstenbosch Plant Fair – without leaving the comfort of your home.
The BotSoc Kirstenbosch Branch is hosting our first online Kirstenbosch Plant Fair.
From your home, you can choose from more than 10,000 indigenous plants on sale, online. This vast selection is offered to you at excellent prices. And your involvement supports our BotSoc plant conservation projects.
The plant fair is hosted online for just more than two weeks, from Saturday 22 May, ending on Sunday 6 June 2021.
– GARDENING –
Gardening for Happiness
we believe that growing a garden is so fulfilling:
“Have you felt that sense of calm after working in your garden? It’s wonderfully therapeutic, boosting your wellbeing.”
“Gardening is a great way of exercising your body muscles.”
“It encourages creativity, as you get to craft your own floral art pieces.”
“It’s wonderfully rewarding watching your indigenous plant babies grow and flourish.”
“In a busy, chaotic world, gardening can help you create a sense of order.”
Gardeners will vouch for the stress-relieving and therapeutic power of creating your own green space.
During a time of great anxiety caused by the Covid pandemic (and other concerns, such as runaway fires), your garden offers wonderful natural solutions for mental and physical wellbeing.
Don’t miss this chance to choose those indigenous plants that will light up your garden, and your life.
It’s never been more important to get out into nature, even if it’s simply the safe space provided by your garden.
how the plant fair works:
Thousands of indigenous plants will be available on our online shop for you to browse and buy when the Plant Fair launches on Saturday 22 May.
You’ll have two weeks (until Sunday 6 June) to look around and fill your virtual basket.
