Rope bridge to add adventure to Philadelphia Flower Show

The beauty and science of water is the theme of this year’s Philadelphia Flower Show, beginning March 2 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.The centerpiece will be a 25-foot cascading waterfall, laden with thousands of tropical flowers and — for the adventurous — a suspended rope bridge through a rainforest canopy.“Lot of exhibitors are doing formal gardens with really big fountains. Some are doing waterfalls,” said Sam Lemheney, the chief of shows and events with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. “We’re also talking about gardens with lack of water. Stoney Bank Nursery and Bank of America are doing an exhibit around xeriscaping, with plants that don’t require a lot of water.”There will also be an exhibition called “Windows on the Waterfront,” with demonstrations of water management along the Delaware River. A one-day Water Summit will feature a TEDx-style symposium of 15 speakers presenting innovative ideas for cleaning lakes, rivers, and watersheds.Victoria Prizzia is coordinating the Water Summit at the Philadelphia Flower Show, a daylong event addressing water issues.

A florist's advice for saving money on flowers

For weddings, budgets obviously are bigger. Drummond, who owns Plaza Flowers in the Philadelphia area, says his customers spend about $3,000-$3,500 on wedding florals. Burns says her customers spend about $3,000-$5,000. Burns says she always asks the budget upfront, not to try to maximize a budget, but to offer cost-saving tips, such as using bridesmaid bouquets as centerpieces. She says she can find flowers within anybody's budget."There's always thousands of choices when it comes to flowers," she said.For example, for those who like peonies, which are a premium flower with a higher cost, Burns says she can recommend other flowers, like a football mum. "So you can always see what they like and then recommend other options if they don't have the price point," she said. Stick with one florist on your wedding day.When picking venue and reception locations, ask if they have their own florists. Consumers are better off partnering with one expert vendor to ensure design styles or flower colors match, Drummond says. Talk to your florist, he says, and even tell him or her about what you were looking at to see if they can match the price or suggest something similar. "By dealing with just one vendor, it is one less headache," he said.Location matters - a lot.Flowers can be shipped from all over the world, depending on when and where it's needed. Florists often purchase flowers from from wholesalers or directly from farms, which Burns says cuts out the middleman.Exotic flowers, however, such as birds of paradise, are becoming more common due to certain farms growing them, Drummond says. Greater availability means customers are less likely to experience an upcharge for those flowers, especially around the holidays.Where you purchase flowers can also impact price. For example, Burns says, being in a resort area makes the flowers more expensive than a florist in a larger city, such as Denver. Her shop receives flowers three times a week during her peak wedding season (end of May through October), but only once a week during the rest of the year.Think before you subscribe.Subscription services allow people to sign up for a certain number of deliveries throughout the year. For some people, it may be worthwhile to invest in a subscription instead of scrambling to order bouquets close to the holidays. Cole offers a $220 subscription service that delivers flowers for Mother's Day, Easter and Christmas, plus a wild card (day of your choosing). Local delivery is free."That one can be whatever they want, so if they're like, 'It's for my mom's birthday, and her favorite color is yellow, could you pair it around that?' Well, of course," Cole said. "But they really come from my style, and what I can do that will allow my creative freedom."Other subscription options include, which ranges from $39.99-$48.99 per month, or between $408.09-$529 for a 12-month plan with a new bouquet each month.MagnifyMoney is a price comparison and financial education website, founded by former bankers who use their knowledge of how the system works to help you save money...

Gardening: Flower shows offer spring in deep winter

The theme for this year’s show is “Breath of Spring."The next show is the biggest of the season, the Philadelphia Flower Show at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in downtown Philly from March 3 to 11 — a full nine days of flowers. The theme this year is “The Wonder of Water.” When you enter you will pass through a rainforest environment with a 25-foot waterfall and a jungle of tropical flowers. Other exhibits will focus on other environments, from jungle to desert.I called the show offices and learned that the show covers 10 acres of indoor displays and involves about 40 floral and landscape displays. The Marketplace will have more than 100 vendors selling just about everything related to gardening from seeds and bulbs to umbrellas and scarves with floral patterns.Next comes the Boston Flower and Garden Show at the Seaport Convention Center on March 14 to 18. The theme this year is “Savor Spring”. Like the Philly Show, it has lots of displays and workshops. If I go, I’ll want to hear an editor of Fine Gardening Magazine talk about “Plants Every Northeast Garden Should Have” to see if there are any I DON’T have. Or perhaps I’ll attend “Garden Design 101 Class: Creating an Ever-Blooming, Low-Maintenance Garden” with Kerry Mendez.The following week is the Portland, Maine Flower Show from March 22 to 25. This is in a new location since I last attended, on the waterfront. The theme this year is “Rooted in Maine.” There will be 14 display gardens, 115 exhibits of plants, hardscape, arbor and garden supplies, and many workshops and seminars.A show I only recently heard about is near Albany in Troy, New York. In its 31st year, it is called the Capital District Garden and Flower Show and will be held March 23 to 25 at Hudson Valley Community College. I hope to go. From their photos and write-up, I imagine it will be similar in size and scope to the Vermont Flower Show — which is now an every-other year show, and is not occurring this year.Bangor, Maine, has an annual flower show, though I’ve never attended. This year it will be held in the Alfond Arena in Orono, Maine, on April 20 to 22. If you go, please contact me so I’ll learn more about it.Last year I crossed one more item off my “Bucket List”. My partner Cindy Heath and I flew to London and attended the Chelsea Flower Show. It is in a league by itself, both in size and scope. Mostly outdoors, it includes displays with full-sized trees planted for the week. Under a big tent are displays of flowers of every ilk: hellebores, all... (The Providence Journal)

Flowers ready to bloom at Oxford

Lincoln to the state championship game. He played his first three seasons for David Adelman and his senior season for Sean Christensen, earning first-team all-state honors during his final campaign in 2011-12. Flowers also was a two-time second-team all-state tournament selection. That freshman success, though, didn't come without some self doubts. Soon after he became a starter, Flowers stewed over a poor performance. "I felt like there was a tremendous amount of pressure on me to be something I didn't quite know if I could be," he says. "I texted Coach Adelman, 'You gotta take me out of the starting lineup. I don't deserve a spot. I'm more than happy to come off the bench.' He texted me back: 'Not only are you a varsity basketball player, you are a starter for this team. Go out there and play your game, and you'll be fine.' "That was a shot of confidence that radically transformed not only the way I fit into that team, but the way I looked at basketball in general. It made Lincoln feel more like a home. I felt like I had somebody in my corner." Says Adelman: "JT was ready to play from the beginning." Adelman says his work ethic helped get Flowers to the top. "I gave him a key to the gym," says Adelman, now an assistant coach for the Denver Nuggets. "He'd get there early and shoot by himself. He'd practice with the freshman team in the morning. He had such a desire to get better." A D V E R T I S I N G Continue reading belowBy the time Flowers was a senior, "he was our most valuable player," says Christensen, now head coach at La Salle Prep. "He was a wing with guard skills. He could do everything — shoot, defend, rebound. He carried our team." Flowers' coaches appreciated him as a person, too. "Very likable," Christensen says. "Has a great smile. Charismatic. Well-liked by everybody. The kids liked him, teachers liked him, administrators liked him." "He's an eclectic kid, unique, involved in a lot of different parts of life," says Adelman, now an assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets. "One of the best kids I ever coached. Really motivated, an inspirational guy to coach. He was very smart. When he struggled with classes, it was because he was bored by them. The stuff that interested him, he'd knock out of the park. It's cool years later to see what he's turned into. Just a complete person." Flowers says he feels fortunate to have played for Adelman and Christensen. "It was an absolute joy to learn from Coach Adelman," he says. "He...
