With the speaking and tour season in full swing, I have been traveling around the United States visiting garden shows, speaking, and getting some fantastic garden ideas. Most recently I have returned from the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show and wanted to share a few of the display gardens with you (see below). One of the best things about the garden show was all the plants that were both on display and for sale. Happily I spent a lot of time with my garden friends and, of course, brought back a suitcase full of succulents to plant in my container gardens this season.
There is only one day left to attend the show, so get yourself to the San Mateo Event Center tomorrow if you live nearby. My favorite part of the show was all the talented speakers. I was privileged to listen to garden talents John Bagnasco, Rizanino Reyes, Debra Lee Baldwin, Mary-Kate Mackey, Susan Morrison, Saxon Holt, and Nan Sterman among many others. If you missed it this season, plan to go to the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show next season and get a whiff of spring — beautiful flowers, trees, and plants abound.
