It’s almost time for the Boston Flower & Garden Show! I must admit I get so excited when the show opens. It’s like going to Oz. First it’s that lovely, earthy smell of mulch as you walk through the doors. Then the vivid carpets of color from flowers in full bloom bunched close, overflowing from pots, arranged neatly. Somewhere close by water is splashing from a fountain or waterfall. And the people are abuzz – walking, talking, oohing, aahhing and yes, shopping. The show always delivers inspiration and gets me all jazzed with new ideas for my own garden.
The Boston Flower Show returns to the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston this week! It opens to the winter-weary public on Wednesday, March 13 and runs through Sunday, March 17, 2013.
This year’s theme is ‘Seeds of Change’ and will showcase new plants, methods and materials to increase the beauty, bounty and the ecological friendliness of gardens and outdoor spaces.
Since I’m a member of the Garden Writers of America, I plan to visit the show on March 12th during the Media tour. I’ll write a ‘first look’ blog post with photos later that day. Just for City Garden Ideas readers like you!
Tickets to the show are $20 for adults and $10 for children. To buy tickets, click here.
