It’s the time of year when the home and garden shows start to spring up around the country. From now until later in the spring, there will be many opportunities to attend these regional or even national events, featuring products for the home and garden, as well as fanciful garden displays by local designers. While these displays are a feast for our garden-loving eyes, we sometimes don’t know how to apply what we’ve seen to our own gardens. Here’s how to use your garden show experience to benefit your own space once you return home.

Display Gardens

Displays are meant to inspire, not to be literally duplicated in a “real” garden, so look beyond the drama to pick out individual features that can work in your garden. New plant trends, fresh ways of displaying plant material, and unusual structures and seating areas can all be reworked to be successful back home. The designers are often on hand for more specific questions about plant material and structures.

Seminars

Classes will be more instructional in helping you to learn about creating plant combinations, designing with specific plants (such as succulents or grasses), cooking from your garden, and tackling DIY projects for the handy gardener. You’ll learn more specific skills for designing and garden care at these classes, so take a notebook to jot down the best ideas.

Marketplace

Here’s your chance to purchase that must-have plant, tool, book, or accessory to take home with you. Shows typically have any kind of garden-related item that you could think of, and often at reduced prices that are for show attendees only. Ask about delivery options for items you can’t take home yourself. If you flew to the event, think ahead about how you will bring your purchases home with you.
