Sick of SNOW and COLD weather? Me too! Come join us for a day-trip to a virtual Garden of Delights at the upcoming Philadelphia Flower Show!
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 2017 is:
“Holland: Flowering the World,” it will celebrate the beauty and ingenuity of Dutch culture, from vivid flower fields to innovative eco-design.The Philadelphia Flower Show will transport guests to the rainbow landscapes of tulips, hyacinths and daffodils, and through the cut-flower and bulb markets that have shaped Holland’s history and culture. The Flower Show will also explore the innovation that has defined Holland’s approach to its unique landscape, from windmills – one of the earliest uses of natural energy – to 21st-century eco-domes and the Dutch Wave movement, which takes a natural and sustainable approach to landscape design.
Show visitors will experience the rich heritage of the Netherlands, from the canals of Amsterdam to the castle gardens and Keukenhof fields, the historic and modern architecture, and the world renowned art, from Rembrandt to Van Gogh to Mondrian. Holland’s culinary culture of great cheeses, chocolates, beer and other cuisine will also be part of this international celebration. And everyone is "welkom."
The Flower Show attracts non-gardeners as well as die-hard green-thumbed people of all ages. Foodies of all tastes will love the Garden to Table Studio. Participate in the Lectures and Demonstrations series, Gardener’s Studio, and the “Make & Take” workshops. First-time and returning riders will enjoy the welcoming, custom details of our coach service.
