Hailed “the king of all flower shows” by Better Homes and Gardens, the 20th anniversary celebration of the Cincinnati Flower Show is sure to ignite the green thumb spirit just in time for the 2009 gardening season. Whether visitors are looking for ideas on how to arrange flowers in their window boxes, how to improve their vegetable garden or simply want to enjoy the unparalleled beauty of expertly crafted gardens, this show is sure to satisfy.
The event features world-class exhibits, including the Grand Marquee — a massive pavilion dominated by lush, colorful gardens that incorporate a blend of trees, shrubs, blooming plants and architectural elements. A lecture series composed of distinguished national speakers like Melinda Meyers, Helen Dillon and Ed Libby provides visitors with the opportunity to gain insight for their own gardening from the best of the best. Also, visitors can stock up on their gardening supplies at extraordinary plant and gardener’s markets and enjoy fine dining accommodations (reservations recommended) in the park.
The event will be held 10 a.m.-7:30 p.m. April 18-25 and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on April 26 at Symmes Township Park. $10-$25; $2 children. Get more information about the show here.
