"Just take in the beauty-The Phila. Flower Show" Top 5 Page for this destination Philadelphia Flower Show Tip by VeronicaG

  Our first Philadelphia Flower Show-2000
by VeronicaG

Beauty at its best can only describe The Philadelphia Flower Show. In past years, we've viewed vast collections of flowers, exotic plantings, trees and even running brooks incorporated into creative scenes of farmhouses with pastures, a cabin in the deep woods, fantasy gardens or contemporary home landscaping. Each year is a pleasant experience!

There is a large part of the convention hall given over to vendors selling garden related products from plants to dried flowers to herbs to faux ivy-covered lamps. I can browse in this area for a long time!

We stayed at the Marriott Downtown and used the skywalk which took us right into the Convention Center where it was being held. Very convenient!! Ticket sales on line begin in November and then are available at retail shops in January of each year.

Something new has been added in 2006--THE HIVE, a lounge-type area featuring live music and light appetizers for ticket holders. Wine can be purchased in this area, too.

NEXT YEAR'S THEME: Legends of Ireland scheduled March 4-11,2007
