Starting the Season at the Philadelphia Flower Show

Starting the Season at the Philadelphia Flower Show

It's Flower Show Season!

There is no better cure for spring fever than the Philadelphia Flower show! Started in 1829, it is the longest running and largest horticultural event in the country. Filled to the brim with color, scent, art and design, it is truly the inspiration for a spring filled with beauty and new life.

The ten day event is definitely not for the faint of heart. I begin set up in Philadelphia a few days before opening weekend and once we open, customers can come and shop 12 hours a day each of the 10 days. I have learned the essentials over the years- lots of fresh fruit for snacking, hot tea and a really, really good pair of shoes are all must haves for the show.

At the end of the week, it is always worth the hard work. The display gardens and exhibits amaze and inspire each year. I relish meeting new customers and seeing return customers who have become more like good friends. If you have never experienced the show, take the time and travel in to the city at least once, you won't regret it!
