Hanging Baskets

Do You Want to Sponsor a Hanging Basket?

The hanging basket program for the downtown Saint Paul area has been in existence since 1998. At that time, both the Rice Park Association and Capitol City Partnership, began hanging basket programs to promote the use of Rice Park and to bring visitors to downtown Saint Paul. In 2005, these two hanging basket programs were brought together under the banner of the Blooming Saint Paul program, which had begun in 2003.

The Blooming Saint Paul Hanging Basket program has expanded to neighborhoods and just under 600 baskets annually.  Baskets are sponsored by business associations, condo associations, community organizations and individual businesses. For a full list of sponsors click here

Baskets are hung around Memorial Day and then taken down the third week of September. Baskets are watered every day, if weather allows, by the Blooming Saint Paul garden crew.  The baskets are grown by Gertens.
