TEHRAN - Among events held in Tehran, the international flower and plant exhibition was the second most favored, standing after the book fair.
The 14th international flower and plant exhibition officially ended Friday which was the most visited day since its start last Monday, drawing thousands of visitors from across the capital to Goftegoo Park in west Tehran.

Organized by Tehran Park and Green Space Organization, an affiliate of Tehran Municipality, the event is held every year in the same place, aiming to cultivate an echo-friendly culture among Tehraners and encourage them to keep and grow green plants in their apartments.

Among other goals the exhibition pursued were to familiarize the citizens with other countries’ flowers as well as promote domestic flower producers by introducing their products.

On the sidelines of the exhibition, some workshops were set up, each day, where adults and children were trained to grow and raise flowers and plants in small sized apartments; common in Iran’s overpopulated capital. 

The event, open to the public from 9:am to 9:pm every day,  offered a perfect venue for visitors to watch and buy flowers, plants and gardening tools.

Sale and purchase had been scheduled for Saturday and Sunday only but, due to the large number of visitors, the exhibitors were allowed to start selling from Friday noon.
