Next Meeting

Sunday October 18th 2015:

Philadelphia Flower Show by Steve Casebolt

CCSS member Steve got hooked aftrer attending a talk on growing cacti at the Philadelphia Flower Show.

Covering an area of 10 acres, the Philadelphia Flower Show is the largest indoor flower show in the world. On one side vendors sell seeds, bulbs, tools, pots and more. At the other side high-end landscaping firms create 5,000 square feet of Disneyesque exhibits complete with flowering trees. The trees are forced to bloom on the first of March in time for the show. In between are botanical drawings, a bonsai display, exhibits by non-profit clubs (cactus, fern, ivy, and African violet) as well as the horticort "best of" competition. The horticort cnsists of potted plants entered in over 350 competitive classes. The majority of classes are for single plants - orchids, flowering bulbs, traines plants, hanging plants, rock garden plants, succulents and herbs.

Lectures and book signings take place each day. In addition there are design and artistic classes ranging from 10 foot by 10 foot rooms decorated by garden clubs to flower arrangements to miniature display roomsw 10 inches on each side - all with botanical themes.
