Flower and Garden Shows

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

You can get a lot of good ideas for your landscape by visiting flower and garden shows.

My favorite time to travel is normally the fall and winter partly because the crowds and heat of summer are in the past. Garden tourists can also be inspired by visiting public and private gardens.

In the past flower shows were more commonly held in the late winter-spring, but now they are also scheduled for the fall as well. When I have participated in flower shows, I was struck by just how much preparation is necessary in staging these events. I prefer to view such shows as a visitor rather than work behind the scenes.

To avoid disappointment when visiting out-of-town gardens, consult guides, books, websites, and other sources of information.

Calloway Gardens is a great place to visit year-round. Over the course of a year, many special events are scheduled. It is a marvelous haven of beauty for gardeners, but it is also a great place to take the entire family.

Charleston, South Carolina remains a favored destination for spring garden tours as the azaleas and rhododendrons are at their peak during those months.

In the late winter and spring of 2007, a number of garden shows are scheduled. The renowned Philadelphia Flower Show will be March 4th through the 11th. Sponsored by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, this will take place in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. This year, the theme is “Legends of Ireland.”

Interestingly enough, a related theme, “The Beauty of Ireland” is one of the dual themes selected for the 64th annual National City Home and Garden Show in Cleveland from February 3rd through the 11th. Taking place at the International Exposition Center in Cleveland, its other theme is “The Green Building Movement.”

The Chicagoland Flower and Garden Show will be from March 10th through the 18th. This year, it will be held in Rosemont, Illinois at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.

There will be several garden shows in the Northwest, including the Annual Northwest Flower and Garden Show in Seattle. This will take place from February 14th through the 18th at the Washington State Convention Center. Its theme is “The Living Room. 2007 marks the 19th year for this show.

One of the earliest garden shows will be in Edison, New Jersey where the 5th annual New Jersey Flower and Garden Show will take place at the New Jersey Convention Center from Feb. 15th through the 28th. For this year, their theme is “Once Upon a Garden.”

March will bring several other garden shows. There will be the 49th annual Indiana Flower and Patio Show from March 10th through the 18th. This will take place at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. From March 21st to 25th is the 22nd annual San Francisco Flower and Garden Show. Taking place at the Cow Palace in Daly City, the theme is “Living and Loving the Garden Life.”
