It’s a combination of art and science, and it has its joys and challenges. And the magic happens at Abington Township’s Meadowbrook Farm.

Join Meadowbrook general manager John Story on a tour – Wednesday, Feb. 17 from 10 a.m. to noon – through the greenhouses highlighting the unusual plants growing for displays at the 2010 Show, Passport to the World (February 28 – March 7).

You will see them first at Meadowbrook and learn the fascinating, intricate details of this amazing horticultural balancing act.

Meadowbrook Farm is located at 1633 Washington Lane in Abington Township, Pa.

    My friend and I would like to attend the 2011 Phil. Flower Show, on a tour coming from Ontario, Canada. We, and especially myself, have been to Flw. Shows in many countries, but 2011 would be the first time we could come to Penn.
    I am having a very difficult time trying to get tour info. I’m sure you can’t help, I just wanted to tell you how difficult it is to get to see you!
