West Seattle will be well represented at the NW Flower and Garden show Feb. 11-15

information from the NW Flower and Garden show

The 27th annual Northwest Flower & Garden Show provides imagination and inspiration with its magnificent showcase of 23 display gardens, 110 free seminars by top experts, ideas for condo and apartment gardening, and a big line-up of exhibitors in the Marketplace and more, February 11-15, 2015 at the Washington State Convention Center.

The region’s top Garden Creators are embracing the show-wide “Romance Blossoms” theme—the show’s amazing collection of 23 marquee display gardens will feature upwards of 50% more flowers in bloom.

West Seattle area participants include Sponsor Sawdust Supply and Garden Creator West Seattle Nursery’s “Birds Do It…Bees Do It…”

West Seattle Nursery’s garden really is about the birds and the bees (in the literal sense); but a lush, grassy area accented by a subtle water feature provides a setting to form your own interpretation of romance. Blooming spring bulbs add splashes of color, but it’s also a setting where backyard gardeners grow their own fruits and vegetables.
