The Los Baños Flower and Garden Show will be held from October 10-20, 2013 at the Seniors Social Garden in UP Los Baños.
The event is under the auspices of the Los Baños Horticulture Society headed by Marina Catipon.
Special highlight of the show is the exhibit of more than 60 varieties of Ti plants in the collection of Dr. Benito S. Vergara’s company, Exotica. A book on Ti plants (aka Baston ni San Jose) will be launched during the show. The book will be useful to gardeners in identifying their Ti plants in their gardens.
The garden show is dedicated to National Scientist Benito S. Vergara, a long standing member and officer of the Los Baños Horticulture Society and author of several books on ornamental plants.
