The Lure of Flower Shows

Posted by Chris Sabbarese on Mon, Feb, 23, 2015 @ 12:02 PM

phsWalk through the doors of your regional Flower Show, and Winter turns to Spring! Extraordinary plant material, gardens forced into bloom, and hardscaping to die for - built and on display for just one week -  bring a rush of ideas into the fore. Floral designs, Horticulture, Youth, and Landscape Design categories compete for Blue Ribbons and the acclaim of the Judges. Sometimes specialty categories like Bonsai or Photography are added to the mix. And don't forget the Sales Expo with tempting garden tools and hard-to-live-without garden gadgets.  Each year, Flower and Garden Shows around the country feature the latest gardening trends, new plants, and up to the minute lectures by professionals in the know.

This week #Plantchat's Young Emergents discussion led by Brienne Arthur discusses the value of the latest batch of Spring Flower and Garden Shows to newbies in the field and experienced gardeners.  Join the young Emergents this week to chat about the value of professional organizations on #Plantchat!
