Flower Show in Ooty is organized during the month of May, primarily because the hill station is very touristy during this month. Different varieties of flowers are exhibited in the Botanical Gardens and thousands of tourists visit the show each day.
The Flower Show in the Nilgiris is very popular as there are some 150 varieties of flowers that are put in display at the show. These flowers are indigenous as well as imported. There are some variations of flowers that are exotic as well as rare.
To keep the spirit of the Flower Show alive, organizers conduct competitions as well. Many people from all over the country participate in this competition and display the flowers that they have so lovingly planted and watched them bloom. Some 250 people participate in the flower show each year under different categories. The show lasts for two days and at the end of the second day the winners are announced.
