See Something Different This Year!

Sit back. Relax. Lave the driving to us as we soak up the sites and scents of spring at the CT Flower & Garden Show on Thursday, February 20, 2020, in the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford.

Almost three acres of Connecticut Springs into Earth Day 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 Benefits of BioChar Soil to Landscaping with Natives and Garden Design for Changing Climates, get ready to learn something new.

The Standard Flower Show of the Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut, Inc. covers 12,500 square feet of design, horticulture and photography exhibits and has over 500 entries. This year's theme: Spring Into Connecticut.

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. Bring 1/2 cup of soil to UConn Co-op booth for free soil testing.
