THANK YOU for planning a great trip to the Philadelphia Flower Show. It was my first time there and it was truly amazing!!! Both the flower show and the trip to Longwood Gardens gave me some inspiration. It was a nice group of people, the accommodations and meals at the hotel were top notch. Great trip! Kudos to both of you!!!  JD

The 2020 Philadelphia Flower Show Bus Trip

Take a break from Winter! Each year Ballantyne Gardens takes a bus load of folks to The Philadelphia Flower Show. The Philadelphia Flower Show is the oldest and largest flower show in the United States. See amazing gardens built inside the PA convention center. Come home with terrific ideas as well as new garden ornaments and tools from the huge garden marketplace. You can sit in on a seminar or stop at one of the show floor demonstration areas. Every year a new show theme intrigues and delights visitors from around the world.

This year Ballantyne Gardens will be going to The Show February 29th and March 1st. We leave bright and early on Saturday morning Feb. 29th 2020 from Ballantyne Gardens, make a short breakfast stop and continue on to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square PA. We spend several hours enjoying the gorgeous conservatory at Longwood Gardens, and if the weather is nice, and it usually is, there are many great things to see on the grounds as well.

We stay Saturday night at The Mendenhall Inn in Kennett Square where we are treated to a gourmet meal and comfortable bed. Sunday morning we start with a continental breakfast and head off to the show. To see more about the Mendenhall Inn, go to Sunday morning it is off to see the show!
