The Philippine Horticultural Society, Inc. (PHSI), together with its partners and sponsors, will celebrate the annual, largest, most prestigious, and most updated horticultural festival of the Philippines on 2-11 February 2018 at Quezon Memorial Circle Tropical Garden.

The horticultural event will showcase the country’s endemic, indigenous and hybrid plants aiming to promote Quezon Memorial Circle as the place for gardening and horticultural practices not just in Metro Manila but in the whole country as well.

Another mission of the said event is for the Philippines to be recognized as one of the most diverse horticultural centers in Asia.

The Press launch

On Nov. 17, bloggers and press people came together to attend Hortikultura Filipina 2018 Press Launch. What an event the PHSI community has put together alongside its partners, we had an incredible opportunity to learn about horticulture - the science and art of growing plants.

We also had the chance to be mesmerized by the colorful ornamental arrangements as well as to taste some common Filipino dishes served with creativity twist.

Among the highlights of the press launch is the discussion of the laid plans for Hortikultura Filipina 2018. At the end of the program, attendees were given their plant starter kit as token of appreciation for gracing the successful event.

"Horticulture is both an industry and leisure,” said Mr. Zac Sarian, Agriculture editor and columnist for the Manila Bulletin.

Mr. Sarian delivered an interesting talk about the business potential of decorative plants and gardening plus some tips on how to start your own gardening business.
