Tower Hill prepares for another potential record-breaking Winter In Bloom
As New England braces for some of the coldest days of the winter, Tower Hill Botanic Garden will be hosting Winter In Bloom: A Month of Flowers each weekend throughout February!
Last winter, more visitors than ever discovered there is no better place to escape the cold weather and to be inspired than Tower Hill. Throughout the month – with activities planned each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday – there will be expert guest speakers, hands-on workshops, floral ice sculptures, cooking demonstrations, live music, flower shows, and activities geared toward all ages.
The rich colors and fragrances on display will offer stimulation for the senses not only for flower lovers, but for all those seeking a break from chilly temperatures and a reminder that spring’s beauty will return once again.
Plant and flower-inspired, kid-friendly activities take center stage during February’s school vacation week, offering an educational and fun daytrip multiple generations can enjoy together. Daily vacation activities will include story walks, scavenger hunts, crafts, library programs, story time, and more.
The weekend of Valentine’s Day is another popular time to visit as fresh flowers, good company, and the holiday go hand in hand.
In addition, Tower Hill’s lush conservatories – filled with subtropical plants – will be open for the public to enjoy. Garden paths and wooded trails will be open for those looking to brave the elements and enjoy some winter exercise. The Garden Shop, Twigs Café, and Milton Art Gallery will also be open to visitors.
