The National Tree Fair held at Agargaon has thousands of nature lovers throughout the month-long event. This year, the plants showcased were mostly those that catered to the new-breed of gardeners: rooftop gardeners. With numerous potted plants -- both imported and exported -- to choose from, the tree fair delighted Dhaka lovers by offering them a world of unexplored opportunity. A total of 62 stalls from different organisations and institutions displayed numerous wares to choose from. This year's theme was “Live in Green, Protect the Green and Decorate the City-life-Environment.” Orchids proved to be the most popular but there were other rare fruit trees like Australian cherry, seedless persimmon, apricot, avocado and olive. The fair came to an end on July 24.
