Members’ Day Open House


Parks Gorgas 2006 Summer Concert  15

You don’t have to be a member of PHS to come enjoy Members’ Day and check out all that PHS has to offer, including shopping and even an auction featuring specimen plants and props from past Flower Show exhibits!

PHS Members’ Day will be held September 12 at The Navy Yard from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Members’ Day is a fun-filled day for the entire family, including:

  • Music, children’s activities, and horticultural demonstrations
  • A marketplace with an array of plants, garden accessories, and PHS merchandise
  • A live auction at 1:30, featuring specimen plants and props from past Flower Show exhibits (credit cards accepted)
  • NEW! The Young Friends of PHS will collect horticultural plastics (HDPE pots, PS inserts, PP trays, etc.) throughout the day for recycling. CLEAN and DRY horticultural plastics may be dropped off at the designated Young Friends Recycling area from 10 am to 4 pm.

The day will also feature exciting lectures and demonstrations on horticultural topics beginning at 10 a.m. and continuing until 3 p.m., and local plant societies will be on hand.

In the Membership Tent, members who renew (regardless of expiration date) and members’ guests who join PHS that day will receive free daffodil bulbs

Be sure to stop at the Gold Medal tent, where you can purchase exceptional plants that have been recognized with the PHS Gold Medal Plant Award. Knowledgeable staff and volunteers will answer your questions.

Food and refreshments will be available for purchase from Catering by Mario.

Ample free parking is available. For more information, detailed directions, and a list of lectures and demonstrations, please visit the PHS website at
