Tired of all the snow and cold weather? Me, too!
I'm ready for spring - NOW!
Luckily, all over the country, spring comes in February in the form of colorful, fragrant, and wonderful flower and garden shows! These shows are a showcase of beauty and fragrance, but also provide practical ideas for your home gardens and landscape! They are a great place to get gardening tips and ideas ranging from landscape design and plant selection to advice on hardscaping projects.
In addition to gorgeous plant and floral design exhibits, you can sit in on all kinds of gardening seminars and demonstrations. Learn about the latest gardening trends and the hottest, new plants for the year from notable gardening experts.
Unless you have more will power than I do, you won't leave the flower show empty handed either! All of these flower and garden shows have what they call The Marketplace where a great diversity of vendors exhibit and sell all kinds of products from plants and fresh cut flowers to gardening tools and garden related products to garden ornaments and beautiful artwork of all kinds.
In Virginia, the MAC Events Home and Garden Show is held each year in February. This great show features lush, colorful gardens, expert demonstrations, vendors, shopping and more. You can enjoy three days full of great ideas for your home and garden including remodeling solutions, landscaping ideas, the latest in interior design trends, furnishings, and how to make your home more environmentally friendly!
Another spectacular show that is well worth a trip is the New Jersey Flower & Garden Show at the New Jersey Convention Center in Edison, NJ. This year, the show begins February 16th and continues through February 19th. Stroll through display gardens filled with rivers of color and fragrance. Designed by some New Jersey's most talented designers and professionals, the gardens will be filled with a kaleidoscope of flora and fauna.
