This year’s Afri Orchids Open House and International Garden Festival outside Mbombela on September 2 and 3 was more colorful, bigger, and more exciting than ever.
Afri Orchids opens its garden and greenhouses to the public a few times a year, and flower enthusiasts get the opportunity to see some beautiful plants and orchids.
It was an event with a great program that catered to the entire family. Blue Gate set up its popular wine bar in the garden. There was food, sweet treats, and drinks to enjoy while the kids had a great time exploring the garden and play area. They invited international nurseries from as far afield as Thailand, Ecuador, Jamaica, and Florida in the United States, and some local nurseries brought amazing flowers to the garden.
