A tradition loved by New Englanders for more than 100 years is also the region's top shopping opportunity for garden-related products and services. You'll find everything you'll need to stock up for the coming season: plants, garden tools and furnishings, landscape services, botanical décor, clothing, and floral-themed gifts. It's all in the Garden Marketplace!
Surveys tell us that our visitors are passionate to learn more about organic gardening and lawn care, to get the highest yield from their home food gardening efforts and to explore new ways of bringing color and enjoyment into their outdoor spaces. Landscape designers, nurseries, florists, schools, and non-profit organizations create gardens and displays featuring dozens of examples of plants, methods and materials to increase the beauty, the bountiful harvest and the ecological friendliness of our gardens and outdoor spaces. If you are interested in creating a garden in the Boston Flower & Garden Show, please contact Show Director Carolyn Weston at 781-237-5533, ext. 108.
