The Southeastern Flower Show

The Southeaster Flower show is coming! 


January 30 through February 3, the show will be at the Georgia World Congress Center, Building A.  The show is a great place to go to get ideas for your yard.    There are many great speakers on the schedule and topics ranging from container gardening, garden gadgets, aquascaping, flower arranging, landscape design – and of course, photography!  Anyone familiar with Saturday morning radio will recognize the voice of Walter Reeves.  Walter will be speaking at 10:30 on February 2 and signing his book.  The website gives times for all the book signings during the show.


Not only are the speakers worth the trip – the life-sized demo gardens on display will make you want to take them home with you.  They will most certainly make you forget that it is the middle of winter.  But it is the perfect time to plan that spring garden – and your water saving ideas.


The show has a variety of competitions on display.  OK – I will mention the photography contest first – and yes I have an entry.  If you go to my website – it is the blue flower photo on the home page.  Besides photography, there are competitions in landscape gardens, garden design, artistic floral design, discovery and horticulture.


The list of vendors is intriguing as well – statuary, pottery and gifts; jewelry; art and antiques; outdoor living; plants and accessories; tools and supplies;


Saturday and Sunday list a variety of activities for the whole family.  There are make and takes, celebrity story time, "The Beeman," and more.
