Bus Trip: CT Flower and Garden Show

January 06, 2019

The CT Flower & Garden Show 2019

Sit back. Relax. Lave the driving to us as we soak up the sites and scents of the CT Flower & Garden Show on Friday, February 22 in the Hartford Convention Center.

Almost three acres of everything horticulture are yours for the day. Get up close to twenty-seven display gardens and talk with the designers. The gardens cover more than 45,000 square feet.

Take your choice of fifteen seminars, conducted in three rooms, by nationally known authors and garden experts. Free with admission! From water gardens to birds and bees to Roger Swain’s vegetables and Mar Jennings’ Bringing Casual Luxury Home to Power Perennial Pairings in Containers, get ready to learn something new.

The Standard Flower Show of the Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut, Inc. cover 12,500 square feet of design, horticulture and photography exhibits of their theme “April in Paris.”

375 to 400 vendors fill the exhibit hall with plants, soils, fertilizers, garden tools and other floral and garden related products and services in addition to an extensive area of floral and garden-related art. Nonprofit and educational exhibits round out the experience.

Hungry? The show has two cafes and there are several restaurants just steps away from the Convention Center.
