For the first time since the biennial event started in 2006, it will be held both indoors and outdoors, with Gardens by the Bay as the backdrop.
The tropical garden and flower show will run from Aug 16 to 24. Highlights include plant structures towering nine metres high and over 2,000 varieties of orchids in the indoor Flower Dome. Miniature gardens with tiny plants and furniture will also debut at this year's garden show.
The Straits Times is the official media partner of this year's festival, which is jointly organised by NParks and the Gardens by the Bay.
