Rejoice fellow gardeners!
The season of flower shows is finally here!! I’ve officially kick-started the season by having an awesome time at the
PAU LUDHIANA CHRYSANTHEMUM SHOW. Unlike previous years, this season stalls of various nurseries and exhibitors made an appearance at the show.
The Guest of Honor at the show was actually my grandfather Dr. S.S. Johl , Ex Vice-Chancellor. https://news.ludhianalive.com/2017/12/07/chrysanthemum-show-begins-at-pauludhiana/
FUN(NY) FACT : Me and mom went to the chrysanthemum show today. My Grandfather told me that he had “visited” it yesterday (we were travelling). I searched for the news today and found these pics…lol.. Also, it turns out, i bought the exact same plants (double kalanchoe) today in the same colors that he was gifted at the show yesterday 😛
Here’s a picture-tour of
PAU CHRYSANTHEMUM FLOWER SHOW, along with my thoughts, as they flow..
The view that made me forget that we were actually there for the chrysanthemums!!
My favorite nursery TECHNOCARE NURSERY, LUDHIANA making an appearance..
Every year i sow geraniums then i get impatient and end up buying some blooming pots before mine decide to come up!!
This variegated poinsettia is on my Christmas wishlist this year..
And finally the chrysanthemums.. I fell in love with the spider chrysanthemums this year.. Checkout all the beautiful colors of spider mums displayed..
These pink mums were no less..
The overall view..
Queen of the show indeed!!
This seems to be one good place to buy self watering planters in Ludhiana.. Rs. 350
I will be posting review of some of this stuff soon..
Here’s how the self watering planter works..
I’ve finally decided to try Grow bags.. I have been looking for sources to buy grow bags in Ludhiana for some time now.. glad the city is catching up to trends in gardening not very prevalent in the north earlier..
This Globe basket though… Rs. 450 from TECHNOCARE NURSERY
And these new(to me) kind of plastic hanging baskets with base for 3 small pots.. Sold at Rs.90 each
This small poly-house was my fantasy once upon a time.. Very highly priced at Rs. 7500
And finally some tulip bulbs from HARA SEED SHOP, FEROZEPUR ROAD for Rs.50 each!
AND.. LADIES & GENTLEMEN.. HOLD YOUR BREATH.. THE SHOWSTOPPER..
THE ACTUAL “QUEEN” OF THE SHOW 😛 *drum-rolls please*
The show though, has just begun!!
