Today our annual production of flowers is exceeding 78, 000 metric ton annually. Thousands of farmers depend on floriculture and government is giving lot of support for creation of green houses for the cultivation of orchid and other flowers.
Agnimitra Paul, ace fashion designer, said, I want to congratulate Mr. Mohta and the entire team of Merlin for organizing this beautiful flower show Blossom. It is heartening to see that after 11- 12 months of terrible Corona people have come out, even the children are coming out. It is such a relief to come to this beautiful mall and see this beautiful flower show.
“We at Acropolis believe that we are a part of social fabric. People visit mall not just for shopping but to socialize, to enjoy some happy moments and to be a part of the vibrant atmosphere in Acropolis Mall. I would urge our patrons to come with their families and walk through the exhibition and enjoy. It is increasingly becoming difficult to have a glimpse of greenery and colorful flowers In the dense urban atmosphere. Therefore, we have arranged Flower and plant display for our patrons to come closure to nature. We need children to be acquainted with different variety of flowers and plants. Come and enjoy at Acropolis. While gardening becomes the new found hobby in the pandemic, BLOSSOMS would give the patrons of Acropolis Mall a fillip to visit the show, much to the raptures of the children”, signed off Sushil Mohta, Chairman, Merlin Group.
