I went to the show Thursday. I always go. But I must say this year its not very good at all..Just not up to par as other years. even most of the vendors where not plant related.. Oh well it was better then sitting home.

I have been increasingly disenchanted with this show the past few years. The two best exhibitors (IMO) were not there this year. Allen, Sterling and Lothrop stopped participating last year, I believe. I understand it's due to health issues, and I was very sorry to hear that. She is so imaginative. This year, Gnome was nowhere to be seen either. Two of the displays there were shockingly poorly designed with flowers just stuck in like soldiers in a row. Estabrook's was one of the best exhibits with two clever color combinations.
I won't bother going again unless something changes drastically! Boston, please come back!!!
