The near unique five-yearly exhibition draws 300,000 flower fans to the historic Belgian city to celebrate the world's biggest indoor collection of blooms under one roof.
Held over 4.5ha in the halls of Flanders Expo, the event attracts 305 exhibitors from 14 countries together with 24 floral artists to exhibit their wares.
More than 22,000m³ of soil, 440m² of pond surface and eight fountains go into wowing the crowds.
The event is open to the public form 17-25 April and is organised by the Belgian Royal Agriculture and Horticulture Society.
It is the 34th outing of the quinquennial show and this year sees some new additions to the traditional format.
According to organisers, this year will focus more on presentation and the garden experience as a whole.
The FloralIdeas hall offers a boulevard of shops, stalls and garden centres showing a broad range of products.
And FloralienFOCUS 2010 will see a range of activities aimed at developing a vision for the sector on four key themes; innovation, parks and open spaces management, staff and marketing.
