LBHS Staged Flower and ‘Garden Wedding’ Show

As a way to recognize the popularity of garden weddings and receptions in the Philippines, the Los Baños Horticulture Society (LBHS), formerly Los Baños Orchid Society, held its summer show last April 23 to May 2, 2010 at the Senior’s Social Garden in University of Los Banos, Laguna.

With this year’s theme “Garden Wedding”, the event was filled with creative displays of numerous flora that are ideal for garden wedding setups. Invited speakers also talked about how to use plants and garden accessories — seeds, seedlings, flowering plants, garden bells, and lamps — as wedding giveaways.

VS Orchids, Vic’s Orchids & Ornamentals, Valesol, Flower Box, Gintong Talulut, Exotica, Varunee Garden, Robelle Garden, Malvarosa, Earth Keepers, DAP, Tony Pajaro, Mabuhay Orchids and Genesis participated in the landscape exhibit and showcased their arrangements in the center hall.

Among the special guest include Mr. Vic Chin who gave a talk on “Wedding Cake Decoration Using Fresh Flowers”, Dr. Monina Siar, noted specialist on Hoya, Mussaenda and other ornamental plants; and Mr. Danny Tiu, author of Grammatophyllum of the Philippines, which was recently published by the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Forestry, and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCARRD). The book was on sale during the garden show.

Like previous garden shows organized by the LBHS, seedlings, fruit crops, exotic fruit trees, foliage plants, flowering plants, and orchids were available and sold to guests and participants throughout the event.
