TV stars, Oscar participants, wine, daffodils and tea: what do all these things have in common? You’ll find every one of them – and more – at the 86th Annual Bradner Flower Show.
Organizers are planning another great event and they’d like you to join them. The fun starts on Friday, April 11 when Bradner welcomes Ciscoe Morris as guest of honour to open the show at 2 p.m. Ciscoe is the gardening expert for KING 5 TV in Seattle, and appears weekly on Gardening With Ciscoe and New Day Northwest. He also has a radio show on KIRO FM and is a gardening columnist for the Seattle Times. He holds a Masters Degree from Seattle University and his incredible knowledge about all things gardening and great sense of humor make him interesting, fun and very recognizable.
The Bradner Flower Show theme this year is Tea Time in Bradner, and they’d like you to join them for a tea party you will never forget. Saturday will see the return of chef Adrian Beaty of Seasonal 56 and chef Mark Hills who specializes in exotic fare (Mark has appeared many times on Global TV) and demos from Lotusland Vineyards as well as Campbell’s Gold.
On Sunday the fun and education continues with Bert the Moleman, Jeremy Pitchford of Glen Valley Organic Farm speaking about growing organically and Tim Garofano of Say It With Cake. There will be lots of musical entertainment throughout the weekend, crafts, artists, artisans (such as Jasmine Marjanovic, back from another trip to the Oscars with her products), loads of unusual varieties of plants, and of course the big stars of the show; hundreds of varieties of daffodils.
As always, Bradner offers you delectable homemade goodies from our Tea Room, along with tasty and nutritious soups and sandwiches prepared in the kitchen and served at very reasonable prices.
The Bradner Flower Show runs from Friday, April 11 through Sunday, April 13, daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Bradner Hall and Bradner School, 5305 Bradner Road in West Abbotsford. Admission is just $2.
Proceeds from cut flowers will benefit Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre.
Organizers hope you are as excited about this show as they are. As Ciscoe Morris is famous for saying: “Ooh! La! La!”
