The third edition of Flower Show, being organised by Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU), would be held here from January nine.

The “Covai Flower Show,’ organised as part of the Centenary celebrations of TNAU in 2005, had to be discontinued after the second edition in 2006, due to various reasons, despite overwhelming response from the public and is being revived now, TNAU Vice-Chancellor Dr Murugesh Bhoopathi told reporters here today.

The main objective of the two-day show, jointly organised by Rotary Coimbatore Uptown, was to educate the children and public through entertainment to love nature and to conserve environment, he said.

The show would ultimately bring together flower and garden industry professionals, buyers, wholesalers, importers and growers from all over the country, he said.

About 200 to 250 varieties of flowers would be on display including those imported from Holland, Malaysia, Thailand as ’Dutch Decoration Gallery,’ Indian cut and loose flowers and bonsai, Bhoopathi said.
