Boston, Mass. (August 10, 2010) – After hosting over 67,000 visitors to its inaugural Flower & Garden Show in March 2010, consumer show producer Paragon Group of Needham, Massachusetts is pleased to announce the theme of its 2011 event — A Burst of Color: Celebrating the Container Garden. This spring’s Show will return to the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston on Wednesday, March 16 through Sunday, March 20. The Show will focus on the endless creative possibilities of container gardening, showcasing dozens of ways to add vibrancy, warmth, and drama to any size space – a sunny welcome on a city terrace, a gourmet harvest in a suburban side yard, or a fresh focal point for a mature landscape.
Set to the backdrop of over 25 garden displays by cutting-edge landscape professionals and area nurseries, the Show will feature 28 lectures including those by top garden writers Ellen Odgen Ecker and Tovah Martin, 30 gardening demonstrations from leading experts and gardening groups such as the New England Rose Society and Ikebana International, and daily cooking segments from local gurus such as garden chef Carole Murko of Heirloom Meals and the culinary team at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. Visitors to the Show will also enjoy daily children’s gardening activities, two hundred vendors featuring hundreds of the newest products, as well as chances to take home exciting giveaways.
The tradition continues as the Massachusetts Horticultural Society and the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts coordinate colorful competitions amongst the region’s top amateur floral arrangers and horticulturists. The 2011 Boston Flower & Garden Show is produced by Paragon Group, event marketer and producer of major events, including the New England International Auto Show and the National Golf Expo Boston.
