CT Flower and Garden Show is NEXT WEEK!

At Natureworks, the winter is divided into two sections:
Before the Flower Show and After the Flower Show.

We have been gearing up for this year’s show since early January. Not only are we having our amazing retail booth (directly across from the Federated Garden Club section) but we are creating two educational displays. The first is all about Monarch butterflies and it will be right next to our retail booth. Wait until you see what my creative staff has put together! The second is an actual Pollinator Garden, complete with an insect hotel, that I designed. I have been working non-stop on the educational materials that will be throughout the garden. The plants are being forced at a school in Glastonbury.

At our booth we will have tons of seeds, bulbs, terrariums, air plants, succulents, books, and all sorts of spring themed gift items.

The seminar lineup is really exciting this year. I am giving two talks and my friends Karen Bussolini, Jan Johnson, Andy Brand, and Sal Gilbertie will be speaking as well. Roger Swain will be there as well as dozens of other speakers. Your admission to the show includes admission to all seminars that day.

Get your SPRING ON! Don’t miss the flower show. It is a right of passage to the exciting growing season ahead.
