In Kathmandu, Nepal, the 14th annual Florticulture Exhibition and Trade Fair has begun in order to help promote the awareness of flower gifts and the growing demand for beautiful blossoms in the local area, according to Last year, the event attracted around 55,000 people who could visit the displays of 48 different exhibitors.

This year, there have been two awards handed out to gardeners who showed off the contemporary floral arrangements with the best decoration and best species.

The event, which was organized by the Florticulture Association of Nepal (FAN), will place an emphasis on cleanliness and prosperity. President Arun Chhetri told the news provider that current policies are restricting the availability of flowers.

Currently, there are more than 160 nurseries in Kathmandu alone, with 600 across the country. Exports for this year have risen in Nepal by 60 million Rs.

Many international flower shows seem to be celebrating the spring season as well. In the Netherlands, a number of royal figures gathered to witness the opening day of the Keukenhof Gardens, where a 75-foot model of Germany's renowned Brandenburg Gate was designed entirely from spring flowers, according to The Huffington Post.
