The horticultural team keeps busy away from the Botanical Garden, too. By taking part in many different local, national or international events, including the international flower shows (Floralies) in Québec and Nantes and the Boston Flower Show, the Garden's ambassadors enhance its reputation and help to disseminate its expertise. These events give thousands of visitors a chance to appreciate the splendours of the Botanical Garden from a distance, while fostering a greater appreciation of the beauties of the plant world and interesting more people in gardening. The Botanical Garden has often won prestigious awards at such shows, in recognition of the exceptional quality of its plants.
