Designers vie for top awards at the 2018 Northwest Flower & Garden Festival!

We saw a large variety of ideas and styles this year at the 2018 Northwest Flower & Garden Festival!
While there are many gardens who won this year, the most awarded garden went to “Wabi-Sabi” by West Seattle Nursery – winner of Ethel Moss People’s Choice, Founders Cup, the Garden Design Magazine award & more. It was a lush spa theme with containers and plants donning gorgeous shades of white. Congratulations to the staff at West Seattle!

Stunning beauty and imagination was all around the festival this year, ranging from a bonsai zen garden to a vanilla orchid farm. Hope you got a chance to see these amazing displays in person at the 2018 Northwest Flower & Garden Festival! Have an idea of what you want to see in next year’s gardens? Let us know! – Courtney
