The Orchid Extravaganza presented by Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania is one of the most anticipated events of the year. We at Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast look forward to it every year after months of cold weather, snow, gray skies and naked trees. Imagine walking through 4 acres of a heated conservatory where every wall is draped with baskets of orchids – almost 5000 await you. The show runs from January 25 through March 30, 2014. You might even think about combining the Orchid Extravaganza with the Philadelphia Flower Show which runs from March 1 – March 9. Hamanassett is a 25 minute drive from Philadelphia and about a 20 minute drive to Longwood Gardens so we are centrally located for both events.
