Shows & Events

New England Spring Flower Show
It's a 130-year tradition. The New England Spring Flower Show is the granddaddy of all the flower shows in our region. This year it runs March 17-25 at the Bayside Expo and Conference Center in Boston.

The theme for the 2001 show is "The Inspired Garden," and it will feature more than 40 fully landscaped gardens, demonstrations, lectures, and 250 vendors selling all types of gardening products and plants.

For a spring-starved gardener, this show is a breath of fresh air. Check out the Massachusetts Horticultural Society's Web site at
