Join the Flower Show Amateur Competitions!

The Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s program, MassHort at the Flower Show, manages all the amateur competitions at the show (which is owned and run by The Paragon Group). Amateur competitions include: floral design, amateur horticulture competitions including plant rooms, bay windows, individual house plants/horticulture exhibits, and junior horticulture, Ikebana display, miniature gardens, and photography.

The Amateur Competitions are found in the Conference Center - the elegant space behind the glassed rotunda at the rear of the Seaport World Trade Center - but you'll find Mass Hort on the main floor as well, with our garden exhibit.

Mass Hort’s part of the  Boston Flower & Garden Show is the product of hundreds of volunteers working on the show and all the individuals displaying the pride of their plant collections. It's teamwork by extraordinary people who share Mass Hort's mission."

You too, can get involved in the fun of competing at the flower show. Please check out the competitive schedules by clicking on the links below.
