Locals making an appearance include garden creators Adam Gorski Landscapes, Inc. of North Bend, and marketplace vendors The Dahlia Barn of North Bend, Good Medicine of Carnation and Eastside Tree Works of Fall City.
The Northwest Flower & Garden Show provides imagination and inspiration with its magnificent showcase of gardens big and small, over 100 free seminars, “Play With Friends” for families, a big line-up of exhibitors in the Marketplace and more, next week (February 5-9) at the Washington State Convention Center.
“Art in Bloom” is the show’s theme for 2014, with the region’s top garden designers and landscape firms embracing a festive tribute to art in over 20 colorful and dramatic display gardens. It’s a rich palette of color and light, with thousands of blooming flowers and exotic plants giving showgoers a sneak preview of spring.
The show boasts a big line-up of 110 seminars presented by top-tier experts, all free with admission to the show. It’s a great way to jump-start your gardening experiences--and learn about trends that not only beautify but are practical, too.
