Portland Flower Show 2013Portland’s Flower Show returns in 2013 with the theme “Timeless Gardens.”

We are a collaboration of green industry landscapers, growers, gardeners and industry retailers dedicated to the continued success of everything about “Gardening in Maine.” Whether you are a property owner, renter, or consumer of fine flowers and vegetables, this is the garden show that will bring it all together for you. This year’s theme is “Celebration!”

The event is hosted in The Portland Company, a nine acre industrial site with a commanding location on the eastern end of Portland’s waterfront. It was established in 1846 as a locomotive foundry to build railroad equipment for the connection between Portland and Montreal. It was a significant New England medium to heavy steel fabricator until 1978. It had a proud history of serving New England manufacturer’s and utilities while building 628 locomotives 160 ships (including Iron Clads), equipment for the Panama Canal and so on. Presently the site has become a marine oriented complex with a small marina, several marine as well as other office tenants and an operating Maine two-foot narrow gauge railroad museum.
