The Department Of Horticulture at the Public Gardens is organising the Horticulture Trade Fair at the People's Plaza Ground, Necklace Road, from 26th to 30th January. The sale-cum-exhibition is one of the most eagerly awaited shows by plant lovers, after the Nursery Mela.
Nursery and plant exhibitors from various districts and states will be participating in this 5-day event. The trade fair is intended to create marketing avenues for nurserymen, and to publicise the availability of various new variants of plant material.
The fair will showcase more than 1,500 species of plants covering about 7,500 varieties. Horticulturists from neighbouring states will also be taking part in the exhibition. Bio-fertilisers, garden tools, seeds and pesticides, besides various plants, will be on display and sale. The exhibition is intended to inculcate and spread knowledge among people about micro-irrigation systems, tissue culture, floriculture, bonsai and ikebana, nursery systems, and green house.
The entry is free. Please contact the Department of Horticulture at 2329-9779/6559-1474/98852-60305 for further details.
