It may be hard to believe it now, but spring will be here before we know it. In Seattle, we know better than anyone that rain is necessary to yield the beautiful blooms of spring, and we start preparing well in advance. The Northwest Flower and Garden Festival has everything you need, including inspiration, to help get your gardens ready for the upcoming season. The festival is the second largest garden show in the US and features informative seminars and workshops, lush display gardens and a marketplace with 350 exhibitors and vendors offering gardening tools, supplies, glassware, decor, plants, and artwork and so much more! 
During the festival, from February 26 to March 1, attendees will be able to participate in a packed schedule of workshops, lectures, demos, and exhibitions that all focus on innovative approaches to gardening. These events all take place at the Washington State Convention Center. At the Blooms and Bubbles Floral workshop, you can sip on a glass of champagne while creating a wonderful floral arrangement. The City Living exhibit features the best in urban gardening and offers some inspired suggestions for creating a garden in your apartment or condo. The festival will also showcase the Fleurs de Villes, an extraordinary display featuring mannequins dressed in elaborate gowns made almost entirely from floral and botanical arrangements. These are just a few of the highlights from The Northwest Flower and Garden Festival’s fabulous slate of events.  
Attendees will also be able to view over twenty spectacular display gardens, all constructed on the spot, right on the show floor in less than 72 hours. These displays range in size from 500 to 1,500 square feet and will provide both new and seasoned gardeners the inspiration needed to start planning out your own home garden space. These lovely garden exhibits will all be eligible for top prizes at the 2020 Show Garden Awards.
Those coming to the show with children in tow can be assured that the young ones are welcome to join in on the festivities as well! Junior gardeners can participate in the Kids Treasure Hunt, where they will be on a mission to seek out various objects hidden among the gardens. When they have located all the items on their list, a special prize will be awarded!
