WINTER IN BLOOM
FIVE WEEKENDS OF FLOWERS
FEBRUARY 4 – MARCH 5
In honor of Worcester County Horticultural Society’s 175th Anniversary this year, our floral design series invites professional and amateur designers alike to create arrangements capturing the essence of Tower Hill’s eighteen distinctive gardens.
As New England braces for some of the coldest days of the winter, Tower Hill Botanic Garden will be hosting Winter In Bloom: Five Weekends of Flowers. Last winter, more visitors than ever discovered there is no better place in February to escape the cold weather and to be inspired than Tower Hill. Throughout the month – with activities planned each Saturday, and Sunday of February – there will be expert guest speakers, hands-on workshops, flower shows, displays by leading floral designers, and activities geared to all ages. The rich colors and fragrances offer stimulation for the senses not only for flower lovers, but for all those seeking a break from chilly temperatures and a reminder that spring’s beauty will return once again.
