David, What I heard is they are taking off this year but will have a bigger and better show next year (2013).
ERICA , PLEASE DON'T ACCEPT MY COMMENTS AS UNCHARITABLE ........BUT THEY HAD A YEAR SINCE 2011 . I THINK IT'S JUST SPIN FOR PUBLIC CONSUMPTION . TRUTHFULLY , THE ECONOMY WAY HAVE A BEARING ON THEIR DECISION . I TOTALLY SUPPORT THE FOLKS THAT PUT ON THIS SHOW AND HAVE MISSED VERY FEW IN THE PAST 25 YEARS . I GO BACK TO WHEN THEY WERE HELD AT THE OLD SEARS BUILDING , THE LOCATION IN FOREST PARK AND DOWNTOWN ATLANTA BFORE THE GALLERIA .I RECEIVE THEIR EMAILS AND THEY HAVE HELPED ME LOCATE A VENDOR FROM A SHOW A FEW YEARS BACK . I GOT MY INFO TODAY BY GOING TO THEIR WEB SITE .
I wish we had another option, we need a Flower Show!!
ERICA .....LOOKS LIKE I'M GONNA HAVE TO MAKE GIBBS GARDENS MY FLOWER SHOW ! PLUS .....MY FINANCIAL PLANNER IS HAVING WALTER IN FOR A WORKSHOP/SEMINAR AT SOME TIME IN MARCH .
I GUESS WE ARE GONNA HAVE HAVE WITHDRAWAL PAINS FOR NO FLOWER SHOW . IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY FOCAL POINT FOR SPRING PLANNING .
Hard to believe not having a Flower Show. They are always such a nice event to attend and see such great work done by some of the best designers and companies in the Atlanta area. It has been obvious that the size has scaled down greatly over the last few years. Let's hope it returns next year.
