Remember plucking dainty blooms in the garden as a child, then carefully placing them between sheets of newspaper and piles of the heftiest books you could find? Flower-pressing is back in a big way, and we love the practice for its calming effect and aesthetic appeal. Botanists also rely on pressed plants for identification and to fill their herbariums with dried specimens as plant libraries. Join top horticulturist Liesl van der Walt and artist Tina-Marie Malherbe as they guide you through the garden to pick, identify and fill your press with your own botanical collection.

Steaming coffee from our Lekker Room is served upon arrival.
Lunch at the Greenhouse Restaurant is included.
