We have thousands of clivias growing in the shade of our wild olive trees, as well as the very special Mick Dower collection displayed in the Puff Adder.

Enjoy a guided walk through the flowering clivias and learn more about the different species and their selected hybrids. Experienced clivia growers will share their wealth of knowledge on the subject of growing and maintaining clivias – they’ll give you tips on sowing, dividing old plants, potting mixes and fertilisers for clivias as well as on how to treat common clivia diseases.
In the House of Shadows, we take a look at some of the best known clivia hybrids and the art of cross-pollination. Then it will be your turn to stick your hands in the soil and plant your very own clivia, a living souvenir to take home with you.
Lunch will be served in the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price.
