February 8, 2023 — It is with great sadness that the Maine Landscape and Nursery Association (MELNA) announces the end of the Maine Flower Show. There are no plans to have any more flower shows in the future.
MELNA hopes the roughly 60,000 visitors to our March shows over the past few years had a great experience and found some inspiration for their gardens throughout Maine.
The great financial loss that was incurred when COVID forced cancellation of the 2020 Maine Flower Show, combined with no assurance of a suitable venue in the future, led MELNA membership to this hard decision.
MELNA encourages anyone interested in gardening to visit any MELNA-member garden center or discuss ideas with any MELNA-member landscape company. A list of those businesses can be found at www.melna.org.
Established in 1970, the Maine Landscape and Nursery Association (MELNA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the encouragement and promotion of its members throughout the industry, including financial support of secondary horticultural education and product research, website connectivity, media representation, and a professional certification program.
