Bahrain Garden Club to mark anniversary in style
Manama, October 21, 2012
The Bahrain Garden Club (BCG) will be celebrating its 48th anniversary in style next year at the annual 'Flower and Vegetable Show' which will be held on the sidelines of the Bahrain International Garden Show.
The upcoming event will have special competitions and visitors to the show will have the opportunity to admire the many flower arranging exhibits interpreting a varied number of titles, said a statement from BCG.
BGC represents the gardeners and there are twenty five classes exhibiting flower blooms, spike, stem amongst others and twenty one classes of vegetables, herbs and fruits, it added.
There will also be competitions for government schools where the flowers and vegetables grown in their own school gardens will be judged at the schools for the first time this year.
The competition to win the coveted best kept garden is always fierce and many beautiful gardens are seen in order to select the prize winner, the statement said.
The upcoming show will also introduce a category for commercial florists to compete on a given theme for the first time.
Bahrain Garden Club said it has every reason to be optimistic, as it continues to play a modest yet important role in the island’s horticulture development.
"The best reflection of our success is the valued interest and support given to the annual flower and vegetable show as a corner stone of the Bahrain International Garden Show."
"This show is the largest in the Gulf and gives schools, gardeners, and flower arrangers not only a chance to show their craft and skill, but is also allows themto showcase their achievements. Such demonstrations provide an important incentive for those who might wish to go further and study horticulture at a higher level," it added.-TradeArabia News Service
