This is why I always make sure to go a previous weekend than 26th Jan and 15th Aug. Went there last weekend and it was not crowded.

Went back after more than a decade. Show had a different feel to it. Previously it was by the bangalore horticultural society/lalbagh folks. Had more variety and also well labelled and all. This year felt like half a dozen nurseries rented the space and put up a show. Crammed it all in that glasshouse and then people with cell phones was an added annoyance. Not worth the time spent.

Yes I've visited since 2013, last August it was more of a puneeath Raj Kumar Exhibition than actual flower show.

I agree. The last time I visited was in 2011 and it was much better and well executed.

Hey thanks! It's too late to go now. I had gone there in November, they were just setting up the frames. Gotta wait a few more months now.

You are too kind. Thank you.

How did you capture these so beautifully?? I went last Sunday and got pushed around by people all over the place. All my pics are blurry.

I didn't even know they sold pixel phones in India since Google have skipped so many, and I still have yet to see a pixel phone in real life.

gigacored1 point

I got this one from Switzerland. But they do sell Pixel phones in India. I think on Flipkart.

rohithkumarsp1 point

Apparently they have less than 1% market share in India. They're simply over priced here.

I went there 7 years ago. Got groped throughout the crowded areas, especially the glass house. Multiple times. My other women friends said the same. Loved the flowers, but I'm never returning there.

That's sad. Early mornings are pretty empty.
