Curator of the Floral Theatre at the Cape Town Flower Show, Alwijn Burger or Blomboy, who is well known in the SA floristry world. “The Cape Town Flower Show will help to reintroduce flowers into our lives, not as a luxury but as a daily necessity. My motivation as the Floral Theatre Project Manager is to showcase the trend for cut-flowers that is currently sweeping the world. Flowers are about culture and civilization and we can create our own panache and style with floral arrangements within our homes. The Flower Show will, through the MasterFlorist™ competition, also highlight the country’s top floral artists and designers.”
