Stop and smell the flowers at the lovely Escuela de Jardineria Cristóbal M. Hicken this weekend at the orchid festival, thrown by the APCOA – the Argentinian association of orchid growers. Hundreds of varieties of these, the most sensual of flowers, will be on display, arranged along with other varieties of plants that fit under the festival’s title “Autumn Blooms”. Those with a deeper interest in cultivating the unique plants can learn more through courses offered by APCOA.
