Actually thousands of plants, flowers, trees and decoration get used in each display screen. Even crazier, each screen needs to be planned a year beforehand to make sure that of the plants, trees and flowers are available. We give additional props to the Bellagio for recycling 90% of the conservatory foliage. Mom Nature definitely approves.

Due to the fact that strolling the four-acre garden is the best way to stroll off all of that chocolate.
