I’m so excited! The long awaited and much anticipated Boston Flower Show starts this week for five glorious days – March 16 – 20 – at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. Can’t wait to see bright, beautiful flowers planted firmly in the dirt! This year’s show should be a particularly good one for city gardeners – container gardens are the focus!
The Show website says,
“Container gardening has exploded out of the humble window box to become the the hottest way to add vibrancy, warmth, and drama to any size space – a sunny welcome on a city terrace, a gourmet harvest in a suburban side yard, or a fresh focal point for a mature landscape. This year’s show will focus on this popular trend by mixing examples of the endless creative possibilities of containers into all of its gardens and special displays.”
The section featuring the Container Garden Invitational will surely be a place I spend a lot of time!
Tickets are: $20 for Adults, $17 for Seniors (over 65) and $10 for children (6-17).
BTW: I’m heading to the Flower Show Preview Party on Tuesday, March 15th. It’s a benefit for the City of Boston Parks Department. A great crew of people doing wonderful work. I’ll blog on Wednesday with my comments and some photographs to whet your gardening appetite. For more info on the Flower Show, go to www.TheBostonFlowerShow.com.
