22nd Annual San Francisco Flower & Garden Show

Fun activities, inspiring beauty, innovative ideas and products, industry experts and helpful tips for do-it-yourselfers await everyone at one of the world's largest and most celebrated spring garden festivals: The San Francisco Flower & Garden Show, March 21 - 25 at the historic Cow Palace. Now celebrating its 22nd year of inspiring gardeners, the San Francisco Flower & Garden Show is very different from the typical home and garden show. It is known as the most cutting-edge of the top six garden shows in the world for its stunning garden displays, educational offerings and highest quality gardening products.

This year's theme is "Living and Loving the Garden Life." There's plenty for garden lovers at all levels and ages to do, see and experience--more than 20 full-size show gardens, free talks and practical workshops led by gardening experts, educational exhibits, an educational and activity area for families, wine and beer garden, live music, as well as shopping for the finest plants, garden art, tools and specialty items that are difficult to find anywhere else.

More than 20 display gardens by the West's top garden designers and creators will come in all sizes and all purposes --gardens for entertaining family and friends, artist-inspired sanctuaries, a flower-laden paradise, tropical havens with water features, a garden full of poisonous plants, an underwater-inspired garden, beautiful container gardens, meadow gardens with great grasses, low-maintenance and low-water gardens, and sustainable gardens featuring California natives and recyclable materials. This year, the gardens will be judged by Fergus Garrett, Steve Martino and Mario Schjetnan.

Kids and the young-at-heart alike will especially enjoy the colorful display gardens even one that appears to have grown underwater. The "Sproutopia" area will have hands-on activities and workshops that are free with admission for families. Musical entertainment and special presentations are planned as well. Discounted ticket prices for youth and students make it affordable to bring the whole family. Children 5 and under are free.

More than 60 free seminars and DIY workshops offer more talent, more topics and more tips than any other horticulture happening in California. Juried exhibitors will demo the newest and hottest items available on the market today.
