Mysoreans love gardening and every house will have at least a Tulasi and Money plant growing in a pot. To encourage this wonderful hobby, a flower show on a grand scale is held by the Horticulture department during Dasara at Curzon park adjacent to Mysore Palace. Corporates and public sector companies showcase their might in the art of gardening and win prizes. Thousands of people visit the flower show. This year the show will start from 8th October and various other competitions like Ikebana, Flower Rangoli and Bonsai are organized.
