03 Dec Give a Magical Experience to Your Favorite Gardener
It’s become an annual tradition for the team at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show to personally deliver tickets to over 70 ticket outlets around Puget Sound. It’s really just a shameless excuse for us to get out of the office and visit some of the coolest nursery centers around — brimming with colorful winter blooming plants and sparkly holiday décor — to deliver our precious cargo.
So we all hit the road this week to get tickets and posters into retail outlets. Look for them at a nursery center or Central Market near you.
Now where are the tickets? The easiest way to find the nearest retailer is to go to our website and use our search function to find the ticket outlets closest to your zip code.
If you’ve got a gardener on your holiday shopping list, they would no doubt love a gift of tickets to the extraordinary annual gardening show. Package up a basket with some seeds, a few tools, a some good hand lotion, a book or two and a gorgeous Hellebore and the tickets. (Tip – when you buy tickets from your local retailer you save a $1 on each ticket over the online tickets.)
Even better, book a night in a downtown Seattle hotel so you can go attend the show for two days. We have the guaranteed best hotel rates on our website, and our Two-Pay Pass, at $14.50 a day, is a great value for 18 hours of entertainment!
Our Canadian friends now have a ticket outlet at Minter Gardens Country Garden Store in Chilliwack, B.C.
Ticket outlets have two kinds of tickets for sale now — Early Bird Tickets ($16) must be purchased before February 20th, and Youth Tickets ($5) are for budding gardeners 13 – 17 years old. Children 12 and under are FREE when accompanied by an adult. The show is a wonderful indoor family activity during the peak of the dreary winter weather. After February 20th retail outlets will have regular priced tickets for $20.
Tickets will also be sold at the Washington State Convention Center during show hours, but avoid the line by buying in advance! Half-Day Tickets ($10) are good after 3 pm, and 2 pm on Sunday.
Many thanks to all the team who trekked over hill and dale in rainy weather to deliver tickets to our nursery outlets: Jeff Swenson (Show Manager), Cyle Eldred (Show Designer), Kyle Aronson (Webmaster), Linda Knudsen (Exhibits Manager), Michelle Derbes (Show Coordinator), Nick Carroll and Eric McMurry (Sales Associates), and yours truly.
Tickets are also available online with convenient print-at-home. Or visit our Facebook page and buy them there. You can even purchase them on your smartphone, and simply have your phone scanned when you arrive at the show – no paper needed!
And keep following us on Facebook, because our highly popular ticket giveaways posts started last week! ~ Janet
