Extraordinary, beautiful, curious, deadly challenging; orchids have obsessed horticulturists for centuries; they can be seen at an orchids-themed exhibition at Tallinn Botanical Garden, LETA/Tallinn.ee reports.
The traditional orchid exhibition present delicate and elegant miniature plants as well as bolder and bigger species, all tough survivors, all equally beautiful. The exhibition takes place from March 2 to March 10, 2013.
Like people, each flower has its own distinctive character which can be seen when examined closely, sometimes with the help of a magnifying glass. This can make orchids difficult to grow. Gardeners have learnt how to manage their demanding nature and many formerly rare species flourish today.
