It was a 2 day event and I went for one day while I wished I went for both days I was blown away by the array of plants available in Nigeria.
First I didn’t even know there was a garden and flower club of Nigeria and I was impressed. It was founded by Mrs Winihin Ayuli-Jemide of the WJSeries.
I only stayed for the open exhibitions.
I was particularly impressed by the arrangements of the plants and flowers. While it was advertised that you can buy at ridiculously low prices I didn’t think anything was ridiculously low. I didn’t find any plant below 1000 naira and for a student like me that is not affordable.
Another issue I had was that the plants were not labelled and I had trouble recognising them. The most popular plants were orchids.
They had this nice arrangement of edible garden at the Primi Piatti stand
And this cute yellow Volkswagen filed with plants
There was a book unveiling, speeches, a chef demonstration at the Primi Patti, tutorials on gardening. It was a fun experience and I was so glad I was a part of it.
So the garden show was the first in the series and I’m so glad cuo sent me the flyer.
Love and greens
