In 2019, a florist at Cape Town's Trafalgar flower market, Fadielah Gamildien (or Deelia, as her friends and family call her), made an impression with her witty sayings during an episode of Die Siener.

Now Deelia takes centre stage in the two-part documentary series Blomdraers.

In the series the history of the flower sellers in the Cape is explored, with special focus on the 150-year-old flower market in Adderley Street.

We look at the route of flowers to the market - from the farms in Gauteng to the flower auctions at Multiflora in Johannesburg, all the way to their arrival at Adderley Street in Cape Town.

We also meet Cecilia, the oldest flower carrier on the market. Flower carrier is the name that Deelia and other flower sellers gave themselves decades ago.

Deelia's family is also part of the series - everyone lives together in their modest house in Grassy Park, including seven children and a grandchild.

A tragic incident struck her and her family some time ago, a story Deelia shares.
