Captivating clivia show

FLOWERY AND FABULOUS: A green clivia reveals its beauty Picture SUPPLIED

The Border Clivia Interest Group will host its annual show at Pioneer Nursery in Gonubie on September 28 to 29.

Group member Peter Miles said this show was a must for any gardener.

“Every year there are more and more stunning clivias of different colours, beyond the normal well-known yellows and oranges of this beautiful and captivating indigenous plant,” Miles said.

The weekend promises to be filled with fun and flowery talks, books on sale and even a raffle.

“The talks will be on how to divide and re-pot clivias; how to hybridise and pollinate clivias to achieve a specific goal or colour; how to harvest, clean and plant seeds; and a general question and answer session,” Miles added.

This show has been a firm favourite among green-fingered folk and has been running for just over 20 years.

The event runs from 8:30am to 5pm on Saturday and from 9am to 1pm on Sunday. Entrance is free.
