"This will be a Flower Show that celebrates Britain's amazing landscapes and cultural icons, as well as the city that has become the design capital of the world," explained Drew Becher, President of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. "It will also lift up the British passion for gardening, which has contributed so much to the appreciation of horticulture and its role in our lives."

LeafFilter™ is offering homeowners the best savings of the year with this one-time, pre-show offer. This is LeafFilter's single largest coupon savings of the year, as the gutter guard company is celebrating sponsorship of the Philadelphia Flower Show, which is the longest-running flower show in the world.

LeafFilter™ Gutter Guard representatives will have a booth set up to answer any questions patrons might have. There will also be LeafFilter™ Gutter Guard demonstrations throughout the day, giving patrons an idea of life without clogged gutters. The LeafFilter™ representatives will exhibit the nation's No.1 rated gutter protection and its ability to help keep gutters clog free. With LeafFilter™, nothing but water gets into your gutters.

The 'Brilliant!' themed 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show is the nation's largest indoor flower show and will also feature the country's premier landscape designers and florists, who all work together to turn 10 acres of the Pennsylvania Convention Center into an overwhelming display of floral magnificence.

In addition to the major garden displays, the 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show will host world-renowned competitions in horticulture and artistic floral arranging, hundreds of gardening presentations and demonstrations, special events, a mammoth indoor Marketplace, and a city-wide Flower show Week celebration throughout the Philadelphia region.

The 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show will introduce an exciting variety of new features in 2013.
