Like me, I’m sure most of you have tired of the gray days and skeletal trees that make Chicago in March so darn charming. Fortunately, a little color is coming our way in the Chicagoland Flower & Garden Show. Venture down to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont from March 10-18 for a week of blooming fun (wow, that was bad).
In addition to ornate and complex garden displays and a slew of vendors, the show will be sponsoring the Teaching Garden, a venue for seminars and demonstrations. Master Gardeners from the University of Illinois Horticultural Extension Bureau and the Chicago Botanic Garden will be on hand to guide novice and experienced gardeners alike. Seminar topics range from “Greener Garden Design” to the “Power of Worm Poop.”
