Finding Garden Inspiration
One of the best things about the Yard, Garden & Patio Show, is the showcase gardens. This year is no exception. I’ve seen the designs for the seven major gardens and each is very different and each offers ideas that easily can be incorporated into any garden. And that’s what I’m looking for when I’m at the show.
For a sneak peek at the designs, click on our YouTube Channel and get a snapshot of one of the reasons you need to join us at the show! I’m particularly intrigued with Dinsdale Nursery and Barbara Simon’s design, titled The Nest. For descriptions of all the gardens, click here. And there are many other garden spaces and vignettes around the perimeter of the show, thanks to the many garden designers and landscape contractors exhibiting at the show. In fact there will be 25,000 square feet of gardens this year! And you’ll be greeted at the entrance by 1,000 tulips, grown for us by Wooden Shoe Bulb in honor of their 26th Annual Tulip Festival, March 25-May 1.
