Lalbagh Flower Show 2019 Bangalore – a spectacle showcasing hundreds of varieties of flower – Poinsettia, exotic orchids, chrysanthemum, you name it and its there.

What happens when you have an unexpected holiday in school and your kid doesn’t let you finish work? Wrap up everything and get out of the house and spend some quality time. That’s exactly what I did today. It was a date with my son and we checked out the Lalbagh Flower Show 2019. If you have been in Bangalore then you will know January and August are the times when the Lalbagh Botanical garden, Bangalore hosts the bi-annual flower shows – showcasing hundreds of species of flora.

My son is very fond of gardening (something good he has picked up from me). He follows me to the garden often to water plants and dig the soil. Thus I wanted to take him to the Lalbagh flower show 2019. And if you are in Bangalore around this time you shouldn’t miss it too.

Lalbagh Flower Show 2019 Theme – Gandhi

The 209th chapter of the Lalbagh Flower show is a tribute to Mahatma Gandhi and is celebrating his 150th birth anniversary. While you can spot a 12-foot-high Gandhi statue meditating amidst the garden you can also hear Raghupati Raghav playing in the background.


Be prepared with your walking shoes because Lalbagh Botanical Garden is a vast expanse. There are buggy services too that you can avail to go around the garden. The flowers are arranged and displayed inside the glasshouse. As you approach the glasshouse you are greeted with giant replicas of Gandhi’s trademark glasses and charkha on the either sides of the glasshouse.

The Lalbagh Flower show 2019 is showcasing many events from Gandhi’s life. You can spot replicas of Gandhi’s residence in Sabarmati Ashram made out of Lakhs of red and orange roses and white chrysanthemum. It’s a spectacle you can’t miss. 


From hanging gardens to the famous Dandi March, from Gandhi’s simple way of living to his three monkeys you can spot everything at this floral extravaganza.
