07 Feb Show-Time for the Beginning Gardener
If you think you aren’t skilled enough as a gardener to even attend the show, I’ve been there. Let me tell you what a blast it is:
- Seminars are geared for both beginning and advanced gardeners. Those who are learning. Those who know it all. And all in-between.
- The Show Gardens are a treat to your senses. What a great place to see designs that you want to emulate or learn about a flower you didn’t know existed.
- The company is incredible-people talking plants, grass, design and more all over the place. You can learn a lot even while standing in line for food.
- There is no better Show to attend as a beginner than one focused on the climate that you live in.
- Exhibitors and Teachers are happy to help-no matter how silly your questions might seem to you. They were there once too.
- You can learn about trends and more unusual growing methods that more seasoned gardeners might not know about, such as hydroponic growing (growing in water instead of dirt-now that is cool) and organic growing (growing without the use of chemicals-that’s more cool).
Purchasing tickets for the NW Flower & Garden Show online is easier than you think. And you don’t have to buy one for all five days. There are half-day, one-day and two-day options also available. Kids get in for cheap. And group rates are also available for a lower cost if you have at least 20 people.
If you haven’t purchased your ticket yet, do it here. They take both Visa and Mastercard. There is an additional $1.00 fee to print your ticket, and a $2.00 fee if you want it mailed to you. If you do print it, keep in mind that it won’t be the type you will want to put in your scrapbook.
And congratulations to Alan, who won the two-day pass for commenting on Bird Reality. See you at the Show!
