Trevose Horticultural Society sends invitation to “Bee Inspired”


The Trevose Horticultural Society will stage its 101st National Garden Club Standard Flower Show “Bee Inspired” on Aug. 23-24 at St. Ephrem Catholic Church in Bensalem.

The event, which runs from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Aug. 23 and from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is free and open to the public.

Coordinated by Karen Woodson, of Feasterville, an informative exhibit, “Bee Friendly,” will explain the complex societies of same species members, each with a specific task. Bee colonies are intricate social structures regulated by the queen and carried out by worker bees and drones, according to a press release from THS.

An educational exhibit “Guardians of the Natural World” designed by Joe Dervane, of Bucks County Bee Company, describes how bees, butterflies and bats help to maintain our planet’s biodiversity with pollination.

Those interested in submitting a competitive design entry must register in advance by calling 215-322-4154 before Aug. 2.

A variety of competitive classes are available, including for annuals, perennials, roses, houseplants, evergreen and flowering branches.

Entrants can also compete in sections for foliage and flowering container-grown plants, including a themed dish garden, a Horticulture Collection and patio planters.

The National Garden Club this year will also feature a Youth and Sponsored Groups Division for those under the age of 18. Senior groups from the Bensalem Senior Center will also complete in the Sponsored Groups Divisions.
