SANBI has been awarded a silver medal and two silver certificates for its two stands at the Sunday Tribune Garden and Leisure Show at the Royal Showgrounds in Pietermaritzburg.

The show, sometimes referred to as “South Africa’s own Chelsea” after the world-famous London flower show, was opened to the public from 27 – 29 September, with judging taking place a day earlier.

SANBI's Garden stand (run by the KZN National Botanical Garden and SANBI Marketing Team) won a silver certificate and a silver medal, while our Environmental Education stand (run by the KZN National Botanical Garden Environmental Education and Empowerment Team) won a silver certificate.

The medal-winning stands displayed the diversity and beauty of the various National Botanical Gardens under the SANBI banner. The exhibit of indigenous flora faced competition from the City of Cape Town, eThekwini Municipality, Rose Society, KwaDukuza Municipality, McDonald Nursery and many other South African organisations and societies.  

Earlier this year, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden brought home its 33rd gold medal from the Chelsea Flower Show.

Pls be aware that Durban municipality as you call it, and written in your article, is no longer Durban municipality, but Ethekwini Municipality. I think it will be advisable that you familiarise yourself with the new names that are in use, that will surely show your respect to other languages as it is not the case with the name that has been avoided. Again the word Kwadukuza is wrongly written, the correct way is kwaDukuza. Surely there are people around you who speak the language who can help.
