2nd March 2024 – (Hong Kong) More than 1,100 students from 38 kindergartens, primary, secondary, and special schools came together today at Victoria Park to participate in the Jockey Club Mosaiculture Display by Students. With the guidance of 120 green volunteers, these students collaborated to create a breathtaking horticultural display called “The Candy House” in preparation for the upcoming Hong Kong Flower Show.

The parterre is adorned with approximately 44,000 vibrant flowers and plants, encompassing a wide range of species such as carnations, myosotis, chrysanthemums, lavender, pansies, cosmos, and impatiens, among others.

Drawing inspiration from the enchanting candy houses found in fairy tales, “The Candy House” design concept is reminiscent of a delightful selection of sweets and desserts hidden deep within a forest. Along the footpath, visitors can marvel at charming decorations shaped like delectable treats. Adjacent to the candy house stands a stunning candy tree, bedecked with a glistening canopy, creating a captivating wonderland for all who visit.

Visitors are invited to enjoy the display and capture memorable photos with the exquisite plant sculptures. As night falls, the display comes alive with captivating light effects, allowing its beauty to be appreciated both day and night.

The highly anticipated Hong Kong Flower Show will take place in Victoria Park for 10 days, from 15th to 24th March, opening daily from 9am to 9pm. This year’s theme flower is the vibrant angelonia, and the overarching theme is “Floral Joy Around Town.”
