Garden Show Pictures – My Favorite Display Gardens

Yesterday I attended the Northwest Flower & Garden Show and loved every minute of it. Today I’m going to share my pictures of the display gardens. Below are my show favorites; you can also click here to see all my show pictures.

I'm incorporating these evergreens into my garden for sure!

I love this rock/cement water feature.

I want this Golden Hinoki Cypress!

Loving the Corylus avellana 'Contorta'

Great green winter interest.

Great cold frame! Beautiful!

Cute veggie & tulip filled pots

My favorite! Maybe I can add one these to my next yard?

Aside from these pictures, you can click here to see all my show pictures on Flickr.

    Thanks so much for posting all these pictures. I really wanted to attend the show, but definitely next year. Meanwhile, I can at least steal some ideas from your wonderful photos. Best, Teresa

    • Becca, I got a lot of ideas from the evergreen garden (I wish I remembered to write down the designer’s name). In the pictures I posted on Flickr I included the plant names for most of the evergreens in that first picture.

  5. It was a lot of fun. I tried not to look at what others posted until after I did mine to see if we saw things differently. That cold frame window was too cool. I think I missed that cement bowl, I love it.

    • Catherine, my friend Michelle mentioned that Martha Stewart Living (this month) has instructions on how to make cement bowls (like the one pictured). I need to check it out! I’d love to try making one.

  6. I really liked the last picture, the massive upright columns of stone, gorgeous. It is great to see that is going on at garden shows around the country.

    • Those stone columns would look fantastic in your garden. You should add a couple to your plan!

  8. Hai davvero ragione! l’uso delle tappezzanti sempreverdi può aiutare a rendere interessante il giardino anche in inverno, quando i fiori scarseggiano. Belli anche i vasi che uniscono tulipani a vegetali, aggiungono un tocco di freschezza! Penso che correrò a prendere qualche cavolo….

    • (Translation: You really are right! the use of evergreen ground cover can help make the garden interesting even in winter, when flowers are scarce. Beautiful also vessels that combine to plant tulips, add a touch of freshness! I think I will run and get some cabbage ….)

      Thanks for your comment Josie! I’m excited to incorporate cabbage into my flower garden this year.
      (Translation: Grazie per il tuo commento Josie! Sono entusiasta di incorporare cavolo nel mio giardino di fiori di quest’anno.)

  10. Hi, Angela — That ‘Contorta’ was one of my faves, too. Reminds me of the curly willow I used to grow in my garden, before it gave up the ghost (probably not enough water). Fun to meet you in person…you’re as lovely as your avatar. ;+)
