2013 Northwest Flower & Garden Show this Weekend!

There’s two more days of this year’s Northwest Flower & Garden Show, an annual treat that’s so beautifully set up at the Washington State Convention Center just off I-5 in Seattle. Hours are 9am to 8pm Friday and Saturday, and 9am to 6pm Sunday. All-day adult tickets are $20, or a two-day adult pass may be purchased for $29.

It’s really breathtaking to see the color and beauty of so many spectacular blooming displays, and a treat to enjoy the ongoing entertainment and gardening demonstrations. There’s a marketplace where you can buy the hottest new tools, gadgets and garden art; a floral competition among our area’s top florists that’s fun to watch; and display gardens to stroll in until inspiration hits. The region’s most talented designers, growers and horticulturists are there, and waiting to share their expertise and answer your questions.

“There’s a little garden in all of us,” as the show’s theme says. Now is a great time to check out what you’d like to add to your flower and garden bed come spring! A show guide, parking information and other helpful tips are at
