Bonsai at Kirstenbosch

As part of the Kirstenbosch centenary celebrations, Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden announced the installation of a new permanent exhibition of Bonsai trees which is showcased in the courtyard of the Kirstenbosch Visitor’s Centre at the main entrance.

The collection consists of ten of the finest Bonsai trees in South Africa, the oldest and largest of which is a Wild Olive which is over 150 years old. These magnificent trees have been kindly loaned to the gardens by various bonsai growers and bonsai nurseries. Three of the trees are ours and they are all Ficus Natalensis, so pop in and have a look when you visit Kirstenbosch.
