Gardens By The Bay Christmas Sugar Mountain

This Christmas, the Flower Dome at Gardens By The Bay will feature a whimsical creation using edible plants like vegetables and fruits like pineapples, strawberries, tomatoes and capsicums. Titled “Christmas Sugar Mountain”, the display is a first-time collaboration between Gardens by the Bay and international landscape designer, Kazuyuki Ishihara, a multiple gold medallist at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show.

The “Christmas Sugar Mountain” floral display within the Flower Dome features over 5,000 plants including some 4,000 edible plants like lettuce, cabbage, eggplant, okra and chilli. It took over 30 staff from both the Gardens and Mr Ishihara’s team more than 80 hours to put the display together as most of the work could only be carried out at night after closing time.
