The “Tall, Dark & Awesome” theme is woven throughout the Expo Hall and West Pavilion. The “tall” ceilings allow two-story structures and plant material with vertical space to grow, providing real-sized landscaping and design illustration. The “dark” is incorporated in the Showcase Gardens which will be simulated to be evening time…allowing the twinkles of patio and landscape lighting, fire features and the illusion of nighttime entertaining. The “awesome” of course is the incorporation of new products on the market, amazing beauty in the plant materials and outdoor living spaces.

Get your green thumbs inspired in the over fifty gardens throughout the event. The gardens range in size of massive (up to 6,ooo square feet) to modest (20′ square or less). Be sure to stop by the Plant Market to get your Spring garden kicked off with fresh cut flowers, herbs, seeds, bulbs, annuals, succulents and vegetable starts.
