We are pleased to partner with America in Bloom who will be presenting a beautiful display garden at this year’s show. Longwood Antique Woods built the garden shed from reclaimed lumber in Lexington, Kentucky—then disassembled it to transport and then reassembled it for the center of our display. Proven Winners has provided all the plant material. Dale and I have donated the garden design and finally GrowIt is creating a special app that will give guests information about all the plants in the garden. Sounds like a great team, right?
Hats off to the America in Bloom volunteers, headed by Evelyn Alemanni, who had already rallied the troops and installed our design by the time we arrived in Philadelphia! Of course nothing is ever easy and we struggled to cover our plants to protect them from the chill they were getting because of the doors which had to remain open while everyone was setting up. But it was all well worth it as you’ll see!
Saturday, March 5th from 10 am to 12 pm
I will be on hand at Exhibit 50 to personally greet you and answer your gardening questions
Hope to see you there!
The theme of this year’s Flower Show is America’s Parks System so America in Bloom salutes the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park in Hodgenville, Kentucky. It is the country’s first memorial to Lincoln, built with donations, resonant of America in Bloom’s commitment to growing communities through volunteerism and an emphasis on heritage preservation. Grounded by a simple structure hearkening to Lincoln’s humble beginnings, the garden is a tapestry – serene in its simplicity, creatively cohesive in plant selection, and a portal to the verdant central Kentucky valley.
