Visitor Suggestions

Here are some tips to make the most of your experience.

Dress for the occasion.

There’s a lot to see, so comfortable shoes are a must. Dress in layers as it can get chilly on the Show floor.

Take notes.

Jot down the name of plants you like or the contact information of exhibitors, or snap a photo of your favorite exhibits.

Identify yourself.

If you are a PHS member, bring your Membership ID, which entitles you to discounts at the Flower Show Store and other retail locations.

Plan the day.

Check the schedule of events on the website, or upon arrival at the Convention Center. There are lectures, demonstrations, guest appearances, and more that you don’t want to miss.

Make a shopping list.

The Flower Show is a shopper’s paradise. Think ahead to spring and what you might want for the months ahead. Throwing  a party? Planning a garden bed? Considering a new hobby? Redecorating a room? Chances are the things you need can be found on the Show floor.
