FEBRUARY 2015 IS FLORA AT TOWER HILL

Banish the Winter Blues with an entire month of Floral Inspiration in 2015. Tower Hill will burst with color all February: each weekend we'll focus on a different theme, with guest speakers, hands-on workshops, and, of course, lavish floral displays. To cap off the month, all are invited (that means you!) to enter forced bulbs, branches and shrubs in the Worcester County Horticultural Society's revived midwinter flower show.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

We warmly invite you to participate in Flora in Winter 2015. This year’s Flora celebration has been expanded to four weekends, with each representing a different focus. This year’s theme, “Rustic Elegance” embraces a scope of ideas to interpret. Please consider participating in one or more flower shows of your choice. 

There are many ways to participate. Professional designers are encouraged to also exhibit during the non-professional weekend as individuals if desired. We also encourage all designers and all plant and flower enthusiasts to participate in our Mid-Winter Show, which will showcase a fabulous array of forced bulbs, forced branches, container grown plants and displays. Garden Clubs and individual designers are welcome to team up on an arrangement or display. Finally, during Flora for Families (February 14-20), we encourage you to submit a proposal for an educational display or child-friendly activities. 

Thank you for making Flora in Winter at Tower Hill Botanic Garden a success. Please feel free to contact Lynn Chaput, Special Events Coordinator with any questions at 508-869-6111 x140 or specialevents@towerhillbg.org.
