Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU) is preparing to organize a flower show, making a comeback after a 12-year gap. Scheduled to take place from February 23 to 25 at the botanical garden, this event has generated considerable anticipation, as announced by TNAU Vice Chancellor V Geethalakshmi on Tuesday. This exciting event offers an exploration of the world of flowers while raising awareness about crucial environmental and economic issues.

Reflecting on the past, VC Geethalakshmi highlighted the success of the last flower show in 2012, which drew nearly 2 lakh attendees. Expecting an even larger turnout this time, she conveyed that the flower show, themed "Let Your Dreamz Blossom," will run from 8 am to 8 pm and is being organized in collaboration with the Rotaract Club of Coimbatore. Beyond being a visual spectacle, the event also aims to promote awareness about biodiversity and the economic significance of flowers.

To enhance the learning experience, each tree in the botanical garden will feature a QR code, allowing visitors to delve deeper into the fascinating world of plant life with a simple scan. Additionally, enthusiastic student volunteers will be readily available to answer questions and share their knowledge. To ignite national pride, the show will even feature miniature models of iconic Indian achievements like the Chandrayaan mission.
