The Northwest Flower & Garden Show is the official start of spring for gardeners in Washington State, as plant enthusiasts, landscapers, landscape designers, and gardeners from around the Northwest flock to this annual celebration.

The spectacular show gardens (covering an entire acre) are the creation of some to the most respected garden designers and landscapers of the region; this is such an amazing source of inspiration and new ideas. No matter style you prefer you’ll find inspiration for outdoor living, edible gardening, sustainability, designing for small spaces, and much, much more.

There are over 300 exhibitors offering the latest tools and accessories for your home and garden. You can buy new plants or unique hand-crafted wares, savor some delicious specialty foods, or find that special piece of furniture, or art for your garden. Exhibitors are broken in to the Plant Market, Vintage Garden Market, and the Garden Gallery. If you make a purchase and are not leaving the center for a bit there is a package check service for you to stash your purchases while you continue to enjoy the show.

The Northwest Flower & Garden Show is renowned for offering a really large selection of free horticulture Seminars…It is my personal opinion that this is the real gem in this show. Whether you are a new gardener in need of sensible advice, or a seasoned pro, you’ll find scores of inspiring seminars and hands-on demonstrations filled with valuable education and entertainment. This is an ideal opportunity to learn how to solve your landscaping problems and create livable outdoor spaces and luscious edible gardens for year-round enjoyment.

  1. It was fun watching the blank set transformed into a Roman garden holiday! The landscaping is gorgeous, and I like the gold walls with the blue shutters.

    • I spent yesterday afternoon in the garden getting ready for spring. The plants have buds that are ready to break…I am really looking forward to the Flower and Garden Show, it is really the first time you can say these things out loud to others who do not treat you with a skeptical look.
