The Philadelphia Flower Show

Ticket and brochures! Philly, here I come!
I can't believe it, but I'll be heading to Philly this weekend for my talk at the 2012 Philadelphia International Flower Show! It will be my first time at one of the 'big' garden shows.. Then, in mid-March, I'll be speaking at the Boston Flower Show and then Canada Blooms. What an exciting March!

I will be trying something completely new for me at Philly - I will be 'live-tweeting' the show.. That means that I'll be posting photos/info/fun tidbits from the show as I am there for the full day.. To follow my live-tweets, just go to my Twitter account. I will update my twitter feed throughout the show, so check back often. And, there will be a few blog posts on the show once I return. I can't wait to share the photos and plants and accessories and more with all of you!

This year's theme is Hawaii: Islands of Aloha and there will be some incredible exhibits! Plus, a huge garden store with hundreds of vendors.. How much can I fit in my carry on?? Seeds? Tools? Garden art? Hmm.. may need to take a few extra suitcases..

  3. Where do you get alfalfa meal in the Halifax area?

  4. Great question! I used to get it at Boutlier's Lawn and Garden in St. Margaret's Bay.. they closed last year, but I think that the local Home Hardware still runs the business.. So, they may be a source - give them a call.. Also, you can ask at Halifax Seed and even some of the Shur-gain's supply places (I think there is one in Sackville) will carry alfalfa.. Rabbit pellets are also alfalfa and can be used in the garden.. Hope that helps! I still have a small bag left, but will keep my eyes open for a new source and share that when I have it..
