Sick of snow? Find refuge at Boston's Flower & Garden Show
|The Boston Flower & Garden Show is held annually at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, Mass.|
Today the Northeast was hit with the third nor'easter within two weeks, dumping at least a foot of snow or (two) around the region. The Seaport World Trade Center will be a refuge beginning Wednesday through Sunday, with this year's theme "Savor Spring!", a coy nod to the food gardening trend.
“Enjoy the first taste of spring at the show. Gather all of the recipes and ingredients you’ll need for a year of successful gardening,” said Carolyn Weston, Boston Flower & Garden Show Director in a written statement.
With more than 15 display gardens incorporating the edible theme, the spaces also will represent organic, small-space gardens, homesteading hobbies, edibles-as-ornamentals and family-friendly spaces for outdoor dining and entertaining.
