Some of shows are large, grand affairs and others are just getting their footing. What they all have in common is an excitement that a new gardening season is about to begin, with new plants to try and wonderful new gadgets to make your gardening chores a pleasure. Whichever you attend, you can expect garden landscape displays, competitions, a vendor area, seminars by garden experts and floral displays. It's worth it just to smell the damp soil and marvel at how designers can move and install an entire garden in a day or two. The best time to take in a show is on a weekday evening. By 4:00 pm most visitors are making their way back home and the crowds are the thinnest. Many garden clubs, cooperative extensions and other organizations sponsor day trips to nearby shows, saving you the tiring drive after you've been on your feet all day.
