The Berkshire Botanical Garden’s Grow Show will be held on August 13th and 14th, 2016. The show ties into this year’s exhibition at the Garden: Benched: Come Take A Seat in the Garden. The six flower arranging categories will focus on the idea of Sit A Spell, with each category being themed a relaxed, daydream-like state as its inspiration. These cues, taken from everything from sitting on a Chinese garden stool and rustic twig benches to a backyard bench and a view from the window into the wilds behind will serve as themes for the flower arranging categories. Submissions for an array of horticulture categories will be also be accepted for the show. For complete information visit https://berkshirebotanical.org/event/grow-show/
