Philadelphia Flower Show Draws More Than 250,000 Attendees With Disney Pixar Movie Theme

IMG_3836If you’ve never been to Philadelphia in early March, you’re missing out. It is a spectacle that will, as a lover of all things horticultural, do your heart good to see.

Of course, the renowned Philadelphia Flower Show, presented by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, is the place to be, and it’s full of absolutely incredible displays of flowers, landscapes, hardscapes and all things gardening. But that’s a given.

The sight I’m talking about that will reinforce your passion for this industry and what we do, is the droves of people who each pay $32 to pack in to the Pennsylvania Convention Center per day, to ooh and ahh and take countless selfies with and photos of what else but flowers! As a first-time attendee this year, it made me wonder, why don’t we have more of these throughout the country?

With more than 250,000 consumers attending the prestigious Philly Flower Show annually, it’s a great opportunity to get flowers and gardening products into the public eye – and mind. This year’s show displays took on family favorites at the movies, with a focus on Disney and Pixar films. Check out some of the highlights in our slideshow. And plan on attending next year’s show, scheduled for March 5-13, 2016.
