Boston Flower & Garden Show, MassachusettsThe Boston Flower & Garden Show takes place March 13 through 17, 2019, in the Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, Massachusetts.

“The Beauty of Balance” will be the theme. “This year’s show explores the harmony we create within our gardens, vases, and beloved outdoor living spaces,” said Carolyn Weston, Boston Flower & Garden Show Director. “And after another long winter, it will provide the virtual ‘nature bath’ we’re all craving.”

Gardens on display are created by landscape designers, garden centers and nurseries, farms, florists, schools, and non-profit organizations (a list is online). They feature dozens of examples of plants, methods and materials to increase the beauty, the bountiful harvest and the ecological friendliness of our gardens and outdoor spaces. The gardens are judged just prior to the opening of the show by members of the New England horticultural community and awarded prizes based on creativity, use of plants and materials, color and fragrance, and ecological concepts among other criteria. Awards are posted at each garden.

A full roster of gardening, cooking and floral design demonstrations and in-depth lectures is planned for every day of the show. Other events include a quirky one involving turning whoopie pies into works of edible floral art (it’s from noon to 2 p.m. March 17).

A marketplace will offer plants, garden tools and furnishings, landscape services, botanical décor, clothing, and floral-themed gifts.
