05 Jan New Exhibitors to the 2015 NWFGS
One of the best things about the Northwest Flower & Garden Show is the 350+ garden exhibitors. You can get your fill of the best garden products and trends from around the world, right here in Seattle.
We are also happy to announce our new additions to the 2015 Show!
A big welcome to Garden Essentials, from Calgary Canada. Val Wilson, the new owner, was so passionate about iron plant supports that she ended up buying an iron business for herself! She is traveling to the Northwest Flower & Garden Show to sell her ornamental, yet functional plant stakes for the first time in the United States. Take advantage of this opportunity to swipe this handy ironwork up!
Bees are responsible for one out of three bites of food we eat — and to keep food supply healthy, the population of native bees needs to increase. New exhibitor Crown Bees can show you how to raise and harvest gentle native bees in your own garden (called a Bee Booster). Gardeners can buy actual bees at the Show, along with kits to help your bee farming succeed. Crown Bees is also developing an online network, BeeWithMe. Bee With Me will help Bee Boosters connect with one another locally, find trusted sources for healthy bees and supplies, locate food growing networks, and see farms where their bees are being rehomed. Visit Crown Bees at booth #2264 and attend Dave Hunter’s seminar: “How Mason Bees Can Save the World” on Wednesday, Feb. 11 at 10 am for more information.
Douglas and Eileen Barber are the owners of Casa de Mexico Art and started importing Talavera pottery to the Northwest this past year. They import Talavera ceramics from Dolores Hidalgo, a renowned area for this artwork in the central highlands of Mexico. Expect many decorative and functional pieces for the home, patio and garden that “promise to bring a splash of sunshine to Seattle.” Find these colorful pieces at booth #2374.
Shock-N-Awe Metalworks is a local company out of Oak Harbor, WA. The owner is a self-taught metalworker and “takes a lot of pride” in his work. He creates welcome signs, pot holders, insects on a stick, gates, and more. Every piece is coated for interior or exterior installation, so it’s perfect for any space size. Enjoy seeing these pieces in person at booth #1408 at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show.
