Led by the Philippine Horticultural Society, the event will showcase gardening and horticultural practices that many will find informative. I have long wanted to learn about how to properly care for plants because despite wanting to grow them at home, I’m always left with nothing.

It’s good to know that this event is being held annually. I just couldn’t understand why I haven’t learned about it in the past. Maybe I’m not just paying attention. Hortikultura is the largest, most prestigious and updated horticultural event in the country. It’s aim is to help recognize the Philippines as one of the most diverse horticultural centers in Asia, and the world.

Aside from exhibitors all over the country growing every year, the event has also seen the presence of exhibitors and attendees from abroad. Just thinking about how all plants from different countries are on display makes me amazed at what could happen.

The Hortikultura Filipina 2018 will showcase Philippine flora, endemic, and indigenous plants as well as locally developed hybrids. To reach a wider audience, horti and non-horticultural trade exhibits will be setup. Competitions  will also be witnessed on landscape, table top plants, flower arrangements, arts battles, etc.

During the presscon for Hortikultura Filipina 2018, I had a glimpse of what to expect for the main event. I fell in love with the many plants that surrounded us. There were ornamental and flowering plants, cacti and succulents, bonsai, terrarium, dish garden, and more. How I wish I can have them all at home.
