Taking its cues from the fine arts, "The Art of Gardening" theme of the show will inspire and motivate with garden vignettes, floral arrangements and stylish landscape displays, all set on the redesigned show floor stage. Industry experts will treat visitors to presentations in the new "How To Garden" area, and guests who want to take home supplies to create their own garden gallery will find all they need in the "Marketplace." The "Kid's Activity Garden" offers little ones an opportunity to get their hands dirty, and foodies will flock to the "Garden Gourmet" amphitheater. A destination expo, the Chicago Flower and Garden Show continues to educate gardeners from near and far, but it wouldn't be a Second City spectacle without some Chicago flair. That's why special attention will be paid to vertical gardening, raised beds, inventive containers and four-seasons arrangements. Group tours and year-round events are now open for booking at chicagoflower.com.
