2018 Maine Flower Show

In my mind, this is the official sign of Spring, the 2018 Maine Flower Show.  Having missed it the past two years, I plan to attend this year.  There are always great ideas to inspire the garden (which is never finished) and help lift the spirit.

The 2018 Maine Flower Show is where landscapers, exhibitors, designers, and horticulturists come together in one anticipated annual event. The Maine Flower Show is one of the biggest gardening and horticultural shows in the region, and this year, more than ever, it is” Rooted in Maine.” That’s because this year’s show celebrates Maine’s values and traditions, its exceptional local goods and services, and the bounty of local resources that take root, grow, and thrive right here in Maine.

The festivities kick off with the Premier Night festivities and award ceremony Wednesday, March 21 and continue with 13 display gardens, 115 exhibits of plants, hardscape, arbor and garden supplies, and our packed schedule of popular workshops and seminars throughout the show.  The show runs through Sunday, March 25.  The proceeds from the Wednesday evening Premiere Night benefit the local non-profit Good Shepherd Food Bank.  The show is open from 10am-6pm Thursday, 10am-7pm Friday and Saturday, and Sunday from 10am-5pm, leaving plenty of options for fitting this into your schedule.

We all need a little Spring in our step, so make plans to stay with us and we will provide you 2 free tickets for the show (tickets are $20/each for a one-day pass) with a 2-night stay.  We are just 20 minutes from the Maine Flower Show, held at Thomson’s Point in Portland, making us an ideal place to stay.  Once finished at the flower show, enjoy Freeport with all of its shops, including LL Bean.  We are two blocks from LL Bean and all of the restaurants and shops.
