Washington Gardener Magazine has two tours this year going up to the Philadelphia Flower Show. The Philadelphia Flower Show is the oldest and largest indoor flower show in the world. The theme for 2012 is “Hawaii: Islands of Aloha.” Join us for a visit to the beautiful, tropical experience that blends cutting-edge digital technology with the natural beauty and rich culture of the islands, and so much more. This is not your grandmother’s Flower Show … but she’s going to love it! The Flower Show attracts non-gardeners as well as die-hard green-thumbed people of all ages. Every day, the Show will come to life with hula, music, and fire dancing performances, free wine and spirits tastings, and a Man Cave filled with all the trappings of a happy hideaway. Participate in the Lectures and Demonstrations series, Gardener’s Studio, and All-Star Culinary Presentations. First-time and returning riders will enjoy the personalized and welcoming details of our coach service.
