Does the latest Chicago cold snap have you dreaming about spring? Mark your calendar and get discounted tickets online today for the 2014 Chicago Flower & Garden Show presented by Mariano’s, coming to Navy Pier’s Festival Hall March 15-23! The show appeals to gardeners and want-to-be gardeners of all ages and abilities. This year’s “Do Green. Do Good.” theme emphasizes greening and sustainability for a healthier life—nurturing ourselves, our yards, our home environments, and our communities.
Designed and installed by nationally acclaimed landscapers and horticultural professionals, the show’s stunning display gardens will be brimming with creativity, from vertical planting walls and small space solutions to community gardens. The “How to Garden” demonstration area will offer practical tips on all things green, from lawn care to floral arranging. Experts will be on hand to offer gardening do’s and don’ts and cure horticulture headaches during daily seminars, free with admission. In the Kids’ Activity Garden, little ones can discover creepy-crawly fun at a bug zoo, learn about worm composting, and roll up their sleeves with make-and-take activities.
Get great ideas to help beautify your home with the unique showcase of professionally designed Tablescapes, find whimsy in window boxes from the Garden Clubs of Illinois, and draw creative inspiration from the American Institute of Floral Designers’ interpretive Art of Floral exhibit. Foodies will enjoy daily demos from award-winning chefs at the Garden Gourmet kitchen amphitheater, and the industry’s top suppliers will offer must-have garden and lawn-care products, plants, and tools in the extensive Marketplace.
The stroller-friendly show is a must-do for gardeners and gourmets of all ages and abilities. You can even get $2 off the box office price for each adult ticket purchased and order group tickets online. Spring is just around the corner…at the 2014 Chicago Flower & Garden Show presented by Mariano’s!
