Upcoming Events with Virginia Cooperative Extension and Master Gardeners of Prince William‏


Master Gardeners of Prince William sponsored bus
trip to the
PHILADELPHIA FLOWER SHOW
Wednesday, March 5, 2014
ARTiculture!
 
Art's influence in gardening is the theme for the 2014 flower show. It will
focus on how landscapes, gardens and floral arrangements have inspired
artists from the Old Masters to the Impressionists to today's Post Modernists.
The main-entry feature will include 20-foot-tall frames of plants representing
famous paintings and sculptures created throughout the centuries. As in the
past 2 years, high-tech features will be woven in, such as digital projections,
3D special effects and interactive elements. The participating landscapers and
florists also will show how working with plants is an art form itself. You'll
have more time to view the world's largest indoor horticultural exhibition,
shop for plants and gifts, sample wines and spirits, attend special events and
activities, and stop to smell the roses - there will be thousands of them.
