Escape the hustle and bustle of the city with Gardens By The Bay as they stun with a series of displays for the month of October. Apart from their latest series of Pocket Gardens Surprise displays that fills up the various nooks of their Flower Dome, be sure to look forward to exciting promotions and interesting virtual programmes at the Gardens this month!
Running from 12 October to 8 November 2020, this display entices us to appreciate the versatility of ornamental epiphytic plants such as bromeliads, ferns, orchids and aroids. With their ‘library’ concept, other than appreciating the beauty of the flowers, we would also get to learn about their adaptations in nature and see how they can be effectively used to decorate indoor spaces. When displayed at the right place, these flowers can be used to create focal points to fill spaces, soften lines, improve traffic flow and reduce noise in your living space.
From 5 October to 1 November 2020, escape into an urban oasis and take respite from our busy city life amidst the luscious shades of green. With this beautifully assembled ‘Oasis’ by the Gardens, you will get to take in the sight of their brilliantly coloured macaws as well as the beautiful blooms of the bamboo orchid, a native species that can be commonly spotted in the landscapes of our metropolitan city-state.
Beyond their aesthetic value, these plants also help to create a restorative environment that engages our senses, promoting emotional and mental well-being while boosting productivity. The display also shows how nature can be integrated into our work and home spaces and inspire us to create our very own green sanctuary, an oasis of calm and rest amidst our hectic lifestyles in our urban city.
With this limited display that only runs until 25 October 2020, get ready to be drawn into a dreamy canopy with their trailing flowering and foliage plants! Hanging Gardens is a display inspired by the fabled Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.
Besides the flowery vines that would make you feel as if you were royalty in ancient Greece, be sure to look out for their impatiens, rose begonias, fuchsias and petunias, which are known for their stunning assortment of colours that are sure to be a instant mood lifter!
Drawing inspiration from the traditional French potager garden, Edible Garden is an ongoing display that features various vegetables and herbs that are grown for use in the kitchen. Designed to inspire and create awareness of the importance of food security and resilience, it features a range of interesting ornamental vegetables, herbs and flowers.
These include the colourful Swiss chards, sweet pepper, purple kohlrabi, white variegated thyme and more in a pleasing arrangement that draws on the beauty of symmetry.
