Flower lovers can expect a sea of colour from flowers of every variety when the Barbados Horticultural Society (BHS) hosts its annual Garden And Flower Show over the weekend.
Organizer of the show, Gene Robinson told the WEEKEND NATION yesterday that a bumper crowd was expected on Saturday for the first day of the flower show, which has been held since the BHS was formed in 1927. She said that it was customary on Saturdays to have patrons “wall to wall”.
Some 40 exhibitors are expected to offer a wide array of flowers for sale on the top lawn of the Balls Plantation facility while the recently refurbished fernery, which had suffered some damage during Hurricane Tomas, will host this year’s competitions.
Robinson said that with growing local interest in horticulture, gardening and landscaping, the BHS was expecting good numbers of people interested in plants. (LK)
