Have you ever tried to grow a flower? It can be quite tricky to grow flowers. You have to make sure that you give them the right amount of sunlight and water. If there is too little or too much of either, then your flowers won't grow.

Some schools and universities have special clubs called horticultural clubs. The members learn all about flowers and plants and have lots of fun growing them. Some of these clubs have been invited to show their flowers at the Taipei Flower Show.

This year is the tenth birthday of Taipei's flower show. The theme this year is wedding banquets. There are fifteen different areas — and one of them is especially for the student's flowers.

Other areas show themes from fairytales like Cinderella. Others have flowers shaped to look like favorite dishes from a wedding banquet! 

The flower show is being held at Daan Park in Taipei. This weekend is the last weekend of the show. Entry is free.

你種過花嗎?種花是很微妙的。你必須確定自己給花兒適量的陽光與水分。假如陽光和水太少或太多,你的花兒就不會長得好。

一些大專院校設有園藝社的社團。社員研習花卉與植物的所有知識,植花蒔草樂趣無窮。有些社團還受邀在台北花卉展展出自己種的花!

今年是第十屆台北花卉展,以「喜宴」為主題。共有十五個展區,其中特別規劃一區為學生種植的花卉。

其他區域則展示出灰姑娘等童話故事主題,還有模仿婚宴經典佳餚的花卉!

台北花卉展在大安森林公園展出,本週末是花展最後一個週末,免費入場。
