From Oct. 28 to Nov. 1 at the Main Auditorium, the Department of Environmental Horticulture hosted the 50th Environmental Horticulture Exhibition by putting on display various kinds of flowers that professors, undergraduate and graduate students of the Dept. of Environmental Horticulture cultivated. Beginning with the opening ceremony at 11 a.m. on Oct. 28, this exhibition continued for five days. Main purposes of this annual exhibition are creating displays and making sales while promoting the department itself. Profit from the sale of this exhibition will be used to fund university development. This exhibition displayed various works including unique and rare autumn flowers that professors, undergraduate and graduate students of Dept. of Environmental Horticulture cultivated for one year. During the exhibition, big chrysanthemums were displayed.
These included 487 types of chrysanthemum work, 16 types of interior ornaments, five design gardens, and so on. Lee Su-ah (Dept. of Environmental Horticulture, ’14) said, “I made an indoor potted chrysanthemum together with the gardener. It was hard to arrange the color and height of potted chrysanthemums but our efforts were rewarded. Also, I got to know the features of many different kinds of chrysanthemums. It could have been better if there were more explanations on how to work with flowers and a self-making process added to the Environmental Horticulture Exhibition.”
