***Update: Read my recap of the Flower Show HERE ***

The Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford once again hosts this beautiful garden show to help us get over the wrath of Nemo/Charlotte and begin planning and dreaming of the spring flowers that will soon be here!

Really. They will. I promise!

Over 300 vendors/booths/exhibitors will be available with fresh flowers, plants, herbs, bulbs and seeds. Spread over almost 3 acres, the exhibition includes floral and horticultural masterpieces and gardening products and services.  See a list of exhibitors HERE.


I can't wait to go to the Connecticut Flower and Garden Show and get some inspiration!

  1. Yes a sure sign of spring. Be there or be square! It may not be the best garden show but to see something blooming is worth the price of admission.

    1. Hope to see you! I'm looking to get ideas for some new landscaping for a friend's restaurant. And, of course, anything that I can incorporate into my own garden!
