18 Feb Where’s the Show Guide?!
Everyone familiar with the Northwest Flower & Garden Show knows that for years the all-important Show Guide is printed in the Seattle Times Pacific Northwest magazine the Sunday before the show opens. This year that day would be Sunday, February 20th. So you’ll be surprised when you open the magazine and find the Show Guide isn’t there! What’s up with that?!
The Northwest Flower & Garden Show is now distributing the Show Guide in the Monday, February 21st Seattle Times – wrapped around the advertising supplements! It will be going to all home delivery subscribers as well as in newsstands.
The good news is this change allows us to print more show information and also to design it in a format that is easier to read. So you can find all the seminars you want to see, search for your favorite exhibitors, and read all about the show gardens and other special features we will have at the show.
Of course you’ll also be able to find the Show Guide as a downloadable PDF file on the garden show website (http://www.gardenshow.com/). Follow the show on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/gardenshow and on Twitter at www.twitter.com/nwfgs. I’ll tell you as soon as the Show Guide is posted to our website.
But be sure to read the Sunday Pacific Northwest magazine. You won’t want to miss their special gardening edition, filled with timely gardening articles by garden writer (and show speaker) Val Easton. She’ll be bringing you stories on some of the most unique gardens – and their creators – in the Northwest.
Next Monday’s Seattle Times will fill you with excited anticipation for the Northwest’s beloved gardening extravaganza as you review your Show Guide and plan your strategy to attend the show. It’s been a gardening tradition for 23 years and one thing hasn’t changed – our commitment to bringing you a world-class garden show brimming with inspiration, education and entertainment, for seasoned gardening veterans, budding “grewbies” new to gardening, and children of all ages – the charming gardeners of our future. – Janet
