Exhibition to spark public's interest in gardens
************************************************


Members of the public interested in knowing more about the theme gardens in Hong Kong should not miss the Horticulture Education Mini-Exhibition this Sunday (February 15) at Kowloon Park.

Organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), the event will introduce to visitors five theme gardens under the department's management.

A spokesman for the department said the exhibition would promote horticulture and public awareness on greening as well as enhance the public's knowledge of plants.

The five theme gardens include the Magnolia Garden in Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens, the Peach Garden in Tsing Yi Park, the Flowering Cherry Garden in Yeung Siu Hang Garden in Tuen Mun, the Bauhinia Garden in Kowloon Walled City Park and the Scented Garden in Kowloon Park.

"These theme gardens were established by the department to enhance public interest and knowledge in plants through systematic planting of various species belonging to different families," he added.

Apart from the exhibition, fringe activities such as crossword puzzles, demonstrations of recycled papermaking and bottle gardening will also be organised on Sunday.

"Under the guidance of LCSD staff, children can learn how to plant seedlings in pots," the spokesman said.

The Horticulture Education Mini-Exhibition will be held from 10am to 4pm at the Arcade of Kowloon Park, 22 Austin Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon.

Members of the public are welcome to visit the exhibition and admission is free. For enquiries, please call 2723 6086.
