The annual Singapore Botanic Gardens Heritage Festival is held in conjunction with the Singapore Garden Festival Horticulture Show (SGF Hort Show). To celebrate the Gardens’ rich heritage, the Horticultural Competition of the SGF Hort Show will be held at the Plant House Garden, which today is a garden comprising a grass quadrangle surrounded by pergolas with a central water lily pond. The feature is named for the former Plant House that was built here in 1882 to host public flower shows and displays of potted plants and annuals.
