After hosting more than 67,000 visitors to its inaugural Flower & Garden Show last March, consumer show producer Paragon Group of Needham is pleased to announce the theme of its upcoming 2011 floral extravaganza, "A Burst of Color: Celebrating the Container Garden."
The Show returns to Boston's Seaport World Trade Center from Wednesday, March 16 through Sunday, March 20, 2011 focusing on the endless creative possibilities of container gardening and showcasing dozens of ways to add vibrancy, warmth, and drama to any size space: a sunny welcome on a city terrace, a gourmet harvest in a suburban side yard, or a fresh focal point for a mature landscape.
Set to the backdrop of more than 25 garden displays by cutting-edge landscape professionals and area nurseries, the Show will feature 28 lectures including those by garden writers Ellen Ogden Ecker and Tovah Martin, 30 gardening demonstrations from leading experts and gardening groups such as the New England Rose Society and Ikebana International, and daily cooking segments from local gurus such as garden chef Carole Murko of Heirloom Meals and the culinary team at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.
Visitors will enjoy daily children's gardening activities, two hundred vendors featuring hundreds of the newest products, as well as chances to take home some exciting giveaways.
Tradition will continue as the Massachusetts Horticultural Society and the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts coordinate colorful competitions among the region's top amateur floral arrangers and horticulturists.
The 2011 Boston Flower & Garden Show is presented by Paragon Group, producer of major events, including the New England International Auto Show and the National Golf Expo Boston.
