I recently attended 33rd Annual spring flower festival 2015 held at the Rose and Jasmine Garden on 6 to 8 April 2015. This festival is organized by Capital Development Authority (CDA) jointly with the Islamabad Horticultural Society (IHS) twice in a year.During these four days different Government bodies , Universities and some private firms showing their flower stalls. In this flower festival more than 250 different varieties of flowers are displayed.This Garden is already quite popular among tourists and locals likes us.I loved this amazing and little bit romantic as well because the flowers were amazing. I almost thought that I was in heaven.All the garden is full of colorful flowers. Basically, this garden is full of roses and Jasmine species in priority, but because of festival different others varieties of flowers add more beauty to the garden.
I will show You my experience and flowers stalls, one by one.

Some Stalls are also made by own gardeners of Rose and Jasmine Garden. These are highly professional in the field of gardening that's the main advantage for them and you can also see their decorating skills in their stalls. Stall made by them includes Pakistan Map stalls, Round shape (Hill style) and much more.
