The new design team for the Kirstenbosch-South Africa exhibit in the Great Pavilion at the 2018 Chelsea Flower Show have bagged their first Gold Medal. Award-winning designer, Leon Kluge and his team were delighted with the news on Tuesday morning.

“It was an experience compared to none other representing South Africa at the world’s most prestigious flower show,” said Kluge from London. “Winning an award is an added bonus. My team and I hope that we have made South Africa proud and that we have convinced many people here in Europe to visit our magnificent and diverse country.”
