Boston Flower & Garden Show
with Stacie Cocola
The Boston Flower & Garden Show is about inspiring, educating and motivating the region’s gardeners. Whether for curb appeal, backyard, kitchen, indoor, rooftop or community gardens, this is where New England’s green lovers go to discover new ideas while having fun with family and friends.
Colorful life-sized gardens and vibrant floral designs incorporate the newest design elements, examples of the popular and healthy food gardening trend ideas for adopting sustainable gardening practices and air-cleansing indoor plants. Included will be small-space gardens, homesteading hobbies, edibles-as-ornamentals and family and pet-friendly spaces for outdoor relaxation and entertaining.
This year’s Show theme is “Garden Party: Celebrating Friends & Family”. There’s nothing more important than time spent connecting with the precious people and places in our lives! At this year’s show, we’ll celebrate outdoor living and interior plantscapes that inspire us to spend time with the ones we love. Explore plant families, including the beauty of “black sheep” and “everyone’s favorites”, as well as ways of connecting with each other through our love of nature and gardening.

Join us for a discussion on how to maximize the productivity of your garden through the efficient use of space and time. Bring your questions to this workshop – this time is for you!
