AUTUMN HARVEST
丰收之秋

  • Let a lavish flower field saturated in rich hues of orange, red, gold, and green welcome you this autumn. Celebrate the traditional season of copy gathering with overflowing fields of giant fruits, and vegetables, complemented by magnificent blooms like heleniums, callunas, phloxes and chrysanthemums; and Cinderella’s pumpkin carriage sits pretty amidst pumpkin trees.


    Pumpkins take on yet another twist in the mini Halloween exhibit, where myriad carved and decorated versions celebrate the most anticipated festival of fall. There are more than 22 varieties of special pumpkins to see, such as the pristine white “Polar Bear”, the pretty striped “Pump-Ke-Mon” and the bizarre-looking “Red Warty Thing”.

     

    This year, the lanterns dotting the outdoor gardens as part of the annual Mid-Autumn Festival continue inside Flower Dome. Look out for a plethora of fruit and vegetable-shaped lanterns, and drop by the Mediterranean Garden for a photo opportunity with a giant pumpkin lantern.

     

    From 22 September to 8 October, local seniors enjoy free entry to the conservatories with every purchase of a full-priced Local Adult admission ticket. Terms & Conditions apply.
