Flower Shows

Why Should We Have Flower Shows?


Standard Flower Shows are popular educational and social activities held by garden clubs. They stimulate interest in horticulture and floral design. They give members a chance to exhibit their gardening achievements and creativity. They are a perfect forum to convey the objectives of the NGC and the joy of gardening.
