Kirstenbosch Garden’s exhibit has won a gold medal at this year’s Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show.

This year marked SANBI-Kirstenbosch’s 41st entry to the Chelsea Flower Show. Their theme for 2016 was Harold Porter National Botanical Garden – A Gateway to the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. The exhibit was a replica of this Botanical Garden in Betty’s Bay.

The team announced their award on Twitter and Facebook earlier this morning.
