The Magic of Holland, Right in Philly!
This show is the nation's largest and longest-running horticultural event! Florian Tools will be there at booth #828. You won't want to miss this top destination and "must experience" event.
The theme is "Holland: Flowering the World," and you'll see everything from windmills, wooden shoes and cheese, to bicycles, canals and vibrant tulip and flower fields. The Holland theme will incorporate diverse stories of horticulture, innovative eco-design and modern urban greening and sustainability efforts of the Netherlands. The entrance garden will include 30,000 tulips, and hundreds of fritillaria, narcissus, anemones and other flowers. Another 6,000 fresh and dried flowers will hang from a giant canopy above the garden that will illuminate as a light show!
