The Northwest Flower & Garden show was packed full of amazing gardens, and inspirational ideas. I took an astounding amount of pictures as I walked the convention center. Let me say that this was my first time to this show. It is the 2nd largest flower & garden show in North America, I was completely blown away by what it had to offer!
Looking through the pages of photo’s, I ‘ve done a little bit of categorizing. I will be breaking up the event into sections, and phasing in the posts throughout this week. So prepare to take a walk through the show with me.
Where to start? The container gardens`on the really drew my attention. I loved the skill and variety of all of the presentation. These were a few of my favorite plantings that the show had to offer!
The displays really utilized their limited space. Some by packing in the plants, others with their use of vertical space. Each had a unique take on small space gardening.
This display was the winner of the container display competition. This display used a variety of techniques to utilize their whole space.
My personal favorite display on the sky bridge was unexpected to say the least. It tickled a childhood fantasy. Working through the miniature garden concept, this one incorporates the whimsy of a Barbie dream world.
Never underestimate the impact of creativity in small spaces!
