In partnership with the Quezon City government, the Philippine Horticultural Society will be hosting HortiKultura 2018 in the Quezon Memorial Circle from February 2 to 11, 2018. Aiming to promote leading gardening and horticultural practices, the horticultural festival will be exhibiting some of the Philippines’ endemic, indigenous, and native plants. (“Endemics” are only found in the Philippines. “Indigenous” are found in the Asian region. “Natives” are the Philippine hybrid of both types.)
HortiKultura 2018 will also promote landscaping services, bringing flat landscapes to life. With the rise of apartments and urban living, landscaping has been re-defined by small, indoor spaces. For instance, gardens have been replaced by minimalist, low-maintenance air plants, small ornamental plants and terraria, which have a more modern elegance about them.
There is more to horticulture than just plant arrangement. While it is an art, horticulture is also a science that enhances living spaces for health and well-being.
Hortikultura 2018 will also be showcasing rare plants like the Jade Vine, one of the rarest in the world.
