One can consider the health benefits of some of these flowers and might think of even having one in their bedroom.
This is what the Efua Sutherland Park in Accra was turned into between September 8 to September 14.
Senior Marketing officer of Stratcomm Africa (the event organisers) Frank Gyimah said the annual show was to give Ghanaians from all walks of life the opportunity to beautify their vicinity.
“We are looking at different taste of every flower lover so we wanted to create a one- stop shop avenue for all you need ranging from flowers like the rose, orchid, Gardiner, watering cans, mowers, chairs to put in the garden and even novels you can read in the garden
The theme for the event was ‘harnessing potential in the horticultural and floricultural industry’. He said the theme was chosen to get Ghanaians especially young ones to plant green and also help “people know how to place value on eco-tourism” for more income.
Gyimah said Ghana has rich soil “everybody should take advantage and plant different flowers” because “you do not need to be an expert to plant flowers in your home.”
The fourth edition of the show saw a jazz night, fashion show, family day picnic, party in the park amongst others.
One of the exhibitors told pulse.com.gh that “it is our duty to sustain our environment and by that whatever I do, I do with the aim of sustaining for prosperity.”
