I went to the venue today and find that it is already full of preparation activities.
Below are some of the footage as we countdown to the opening day.

What's new is the Spring and Winter Gardens.
Hopefully, we see lots of Daylilies, Stargazer Lilies, Oriental Lilies, Amaryllis lilies, Hippeastrum hybrids, also lots of tulips and roses. I wonder what other temperate flowers will be on show!





What is your expectation of an International flower show?
