According to her, “When we started 6 years ago, nothing like this was happening. Now we have a garden and flower show that happens every year. The Open Day for Gardners hosted by Selah Gardens debuted last year and we have helped them to coordinate their events. So what we started 6 years ago has gotten a life of its own and there are now so many garden enthusiasts who are playing firmly in the market.

“The 2019 edition of the Garden and Flower Show is being held from the 10th -13th of October as a partner event of the esteemed Design Week Lagos at the Balmoral Convention center, Federal Palace Hotel in Victoria Island. According to the coordinators, the event will feature exhibitors displaying their colorful creations. The event also aims to create awareness and sensitize Nigerians to love greenery for environmental benefits.

“In the same vein, this year’s edition of the Open Day for Gardeners hosted by Selah Gardens is billed for the 12th and 13th of October at the Royal Oak Event Center, and is also being coordinated by the Winihin Jemide Series.
