SAVE THE DATES

Just received my mailing for the 18th annual Flower Show, presented by Great American Insurance Companies at Coney Island. the Show will encompass nine days, Saturday, April 21 through Sunday, April 29 "and promises to be more exciting than ever", according to the letter. http://www.cincyflowershow.com/

Highlights of the Show include:

Lecture Series Headliners: Todd Meier, publisher of 'Fine Gardening' and Stephen Kress, Vice President of Bird Conservation of the Audubon Society.

New this year is the Cincinnati Fine Food Show, held on the opening weekend.

Back by popular demand is Cafe des Fleurs, hosted by Jean Robert de Cavel.

See you there I hope!

This one I can't stress enough...
It's an ABSOLUTE MUST Show to attend.
Take your camera and a rolling cart (to haul around the goodies)

OMIGOSH, I had no idea we had anything like this so close to us! I will definitely have to save the dates and buy tickets to attend! This is so exciting... If I wanted to make an overnight trip of it (I live in Parkersburg, WV, about a 3.5 hour drive away from Cincy) do y'all have any recommendations on other gardens/nurseries I should visit/might enjoy visiting in the area on enroute to Cincy?

Would you be overnighting?
We 'may' just have a R/U that weekend... or at least a mini gathering at the show...

My schedule is pretty flexible--I'd probably either overnight with a cousin who lives in Cincy or I might stay at Wright-Pat AFB. The only thing I have on my schedule is my Master Gardener class on April 27th--I'd have to be back in Parkersburg for that. So I might even stay over two nights--maybe one in Cincy and one at Wright-Pat. What do y'all have to recommend in the way of nurseries/gardens in the area between Cincy and Columbus?

There's a thread here somewhere on things in our area.
We will all chime in w/ our fav's though.
I can give you a bunch in the Dayton area too. I grew up there and moved here from B'Creek.
(As did my old neighbor's Marcy and Dusty's DH...)
If you do Wright-Pat you MUST hit Knollwood Garden Center on Old 35.
The neat thing is now though there's a "Go Gardeniing" tab on the home page.
Hit it and put in zip code 45201 (Downtown Cincinnati) and a bunch of stuff should pop up.
Not a Gardening Ctr per say but anyone who is coming thru NW or W of Cincy MUST hit
Jungle Jim's on old RT 4.

Thanks for the suggestions, Ric. I didn't know about the "Go Gardening" tab--that sounds like a very useful feature. The Jungle Jim you refer to--is that Jungle Jim's International Market in Fairfield on Dixie Highway?

Last night I just finished setting up displays for the flower show. Judging is today and I will be going to take a look and see the results. Wish me luck! I have two entries this year.
