Please join us as we “Spring into Connecticut” at the 39th Annual National Garden Clubs,  Inc.  Standard Flower Show, February 20-23, 2020

The show, sponsored by the Federated Garden Clubs of CT., Inc. (FGCCT), is part of the Connecticut Flower and Garden Show at the Convention Center in Hartford and opens on February 20 at 10 a.m. and closes on February 23 at 5 p.m.  Discounted tickets are available for FGCCT members if ordered before February 1, 2020. Click here for the order form.

You’ll get that first taste of spring that we all need in late winter as you enjoy more than 60 floral designs inspired by Connecticut’s cityscapes, orchards, rivers and the shoreline. The talents of gardeners around the state will be evident in the more than 70 classes of horticulture, from cactus to orchids in bloom to early blooming branches of forsythia and quince. Creative photographs and educational exhibits along with artistic crafts will showcase additional skills and interests of Connecticut’s gardeners.

Plan to enter the show by entering in the Design, Horticulture, Educational or Botanical Arts Divisions or as a volunteer. View the 2020 Flower & Garden Show Schedule with complete details of when, what and how to enter. For information on volunteer opportunities, contact
