Irish Primrose to Make Stateside Debut at Flower Show

February 23, 2011

The Flower Show is on the cutting edge when it comes to gardening, but sometimes the most modern things have origins that go far back in time.

This year our friends at Tourism Ireland are bringing Pat FitzGerald of FitzGerald Nurseries to the Flower Show. There they will unveil for American audiences the first in a series of “Kennedy Irish Primrose.”

Pat FitzGerald will speak at the Flower Show on Tuesday, March 8 at 4 pm in the Subaru Gardener’s Studio. He will share a bit about the primrose’s legacy in the Ireland—did you know eating primroses is said to enable you to see fairies?—as well as provide tips for how to grow them in your garden. Learn more here.

So if you’re a fan of all things Irish, remember to visit the Tourism Ireland exhibit (where there’s sure to be stunning stonework), purchase some charming primrose, and hear Pat FitzGerald of County Kilkenny speak at the Gardener’s Studio.

Find Your New Hobby at the Gardener’s Studio

February 18, 2011

The Flower Show aims to dazzle, delight, and even dumbfound visitors. But beyond that we want you to come away with new ideas for gardening and greening. Therefore, I recommend the Gardener’s Studio, sponsored by Subaru.

Located smack-dab in the middle of the Show floor, the Gardener’s Studio offers presentations on the hour, every hour from 11 am to 7 pm. The topics cover a wide range, so something is bound to pique your interest. For starters there’s…

  • green roofs
  • urban foraging
  • Gold Medal Plants
  • bee keeping
  • culinary herbs
  • and so much more!

Check out the full schedule here and start planning your Flower Show experience. And thanks to Subaru of America for their ongoing support of this essential educational exhibit.
