From the veld to the vase: Meet the harvesters

Beautiful floral designs require a creative eye. For one day a year – on Floral Design Day on 28 February – we appreciate this art.

The fynbos bouquets that we buy in stores are created by a team working in packsheds across the Western Cape. Before they reach the packsheds, teams of harvesters head out daily to pick the fynbos.

It’s an industry that’s more than a century old. And one that supports livelihoods across the province.

So join the journey – from the veld to the vase this Floral Design Day.


Meet some of the teams who pick fynbos daily, which is then used in the Cape Flora bouquets.
