Spring flower show set

Workshops on how to care for orchids and controlling pests in the garden will be  highlight of the first annual St. John Flower and Garden Show, Saturday, April 16th at the Marketplace.  Along with the classes and exhibits, at least half a dozen florists and landscapers will be "showing and selling," including St. John’s Alfredo’s Nursery, Coral Bay Garden Center, and Today’s Flowers.  They will be displaying varieties of plants, herbs, palms, bougainvilleas, ferns, cactus, vegetables and fruit trees. Three St. Thomas-based plant businesses will also exhibit, and a botanical group form St. Croix is planning to attend, according to Jennifer Dale, general manager of the shopping center.  "I can’t believe the excitement that has been generated by putting up just one banner," she said.
