2015 Flower Show Theme Announced!
The Boston Flower & Garden Show will return to the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston on Wednesday, March 11 through Sunday, March 15, 2015 with the theme “Season of Enchantment”. Our gardens are places of magical metamorphosis. They’re the stage on which Mother Nature reveals her most wow-worthy wonders; where a talented designer can cast a spell over a dull patch transforming it into a colorful and lively oasis. And it’s where a little toil mixed with a few tiny seeds can conjure a breathtaking bounty for our vases and plates.Join us for this celebration of the multi-hued magic as our garden designers, floral arrangers, photographers and amateur horticulturalists explore the mystical joys of the spring landscape. Top garden writers, industry experts and creative local chefs will share ideas and inspiration while the diverse and lively garden marketplace offers a treasure trove of plants and hundreds of the newest gardening products to kick off your own spring transformations. And keep an eye out – there just might be a fairy or two lurking amongst the blossoms.
