1 Min Read

South Africa’s showcase of proteas and fynbos at the Chelsea Flower Show in London secured major accolades for its design and presentation.

The international flower show, hosted by the Royal Horticultural Society, draws thousands of visitors from across the globe each year.

As reported by the Western Cape Government (WCG), South African fynbos displays have won 37 gold medals since 1976. This year’s South African display at the Chelsea Flower Show was made possible thanks to a collaboration between Cape Flora SA (CFSA) and the WCG.

‘Our participation in the event will showcase the unique fynbos of the Western Cape, and with the potential increase in the export of fynbos cut flowers, more jobs will be created and both commercial and new farmers will benefit,’ says Dr Ivan Meyer, the Western Cape minister of agriculture.
