This was the first time Tai'an has held a nationwide seedling trade fair in spring. By adopting a market-oriented mode of operation and inviting seedling enterprises from all over the country, the fair was aimed at exchanging new information and ideas in the garden industry and integrating the industry's resources.
Nearly 300 flower planting companies and merchants from North and East China attended the fair.
The exhibition of various flowers and trees in the seedling trade area attracted many local citizens and companies.
Chen Guangjun, founder of Tai'an Ruijing Garden, who has participated in bonsai exhibitions many times, said that he had been engaged in bonsai creation for more than 30 years due to a personal passion, and he hoped to take the opportunity to exchange ideas with other enthusiasts.
Apart from bonsai, rare stones, silver ornaments and machinery were also exhibited.
