Philadelphia Flower Show Bus Trip: Kingston/New Paltz

Kingston Plaza, , Kingston, NY

Join Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County’s (CCEUC) Master Gardeners for their annual bus trip to the biggest and best flower show in the East. The 2018 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show, "Wonders of Water," will celebrate the beauty and life-sustaining interplay of horticulture and water.

Meet in Kingston or New Paltz.

America's leading floral and garden designers will create tropical jungles, temperate forests, native woodlands and arid landscapes, showcasing the astounding plants that thrive in each environment, from exquisite orchids and flowering vines to luminescent desert blooms.

The sights, sounds and scents of the rainforest create a tropical splendor amid 10 acres of landscaped gardens and plants. The playful yet important interplay of plants and water will lead guests through the leafy canopy, along a rope bridge, and to otherwordly scenes that depict the journey water takes and the purifying system provided by nature along the way.

Gardeners of all skill levels will find water-wise concepts, including rain gardens and xeriscaping, plant-your-own experiences, and ideas they can use in their own home environment, from small urban spaces to expansive landscapes. For more details on the show visit www.theflowershow.com.
