Slideshow: The Vermont Flower Show 2019

by

Hundreds of spring bulbs — along with flowering trees and shrubs — sprouted at the Champlain Valley Exposition during the 19th Vermont Flower Show. From Friday, March 1, through Sunday, March 3, more than 10,000 visitors experienced the tantalizing colors and smells of early spring.

The Vermont Nursery and Landscape Association/GreenWorks produces the show every two years, relying on sponsors, VNLA members and associates to fund the show — and contribute hundreds of hours of volunteer effort. It takes roughly 350 volunteers to set up, staff and take down the show.

Imaginative displays evoked this year's theme: "Wonder — A Garden Adventure for All Ages." Vendors from across the region brought their wares. The full schedule of programming included demonstrations, seminars, and activities for gardeners, along with family-room performances by Magician Tom Verner, Mr. Chris and Friends, and No Strings Marionette Company. A plant sale at the conclusion of the show helps send the plants and shrubs to new homes.
