FLORAL COMPETITION Located in the Atrium Lobby, the Floral Competition displays amazing artistry of the area’s best—and most innovative—designers and florists. For a full list of competitors, please turn to page 40.

CITY LIVING For those living in a condo or apartment, the City Living area on the Skybridge features ten imaginative vignettes by retail nurseries and landscape designers.

FOOD AND BEVERAGE For the first time, showgoers can take in the sights or shop the aisles with their beverage-of-choice in hand, including cocktails, wines and beers. Few “hot spots” can claim a signature cocktail garnished with an edible flower — but the Northwest Flower & Garden Show can! Savor tasty new and expanded food offerings available throughout the show, including specialty platters, gourmet sandwiches and burgers, fresh-baked pastries and more.

For a full breakdown of all the new food and beverage options at the show, please see page 46. Returning for its second year, the crowd-pleasing “Garden Wars” charity event will have showgoers cheering on their favorite news anchors and media personalities as they scramble to create gardens “on-the-clock.” All the fun takes place daily from 1pm to 3pm in the North Hall.

GREAT PLANT PICKS If you’re planting a new garden—or looking to add new plants to spice up an existing one—a visit to Great Plant Picks (GPP) should be on your “to do” list when you visit the show. Located on the Garden Floor, this year’s display includes an outstanding selection of plants that will brighten up even the toughest of shady spots in your yard. Designed by horticulturist Richie Steffen, the list of the 2017 GPP’s selection of perennials, bulbs, shrubs and trees is a must to take along shopping at your favorite nursery. The lavish planted containers will give you “Bright Ideas for Shade” and their website offers detailed information about the plants’ outstanding qualities, growth habits and culture. Don't go shopping without it! Great Plant Picks is an educational program of the Elisabeth C. Miller Botanical Garden. It debuted in 2001 with the first recommendations for a comprehensive palette of outstanding plants for our region’s maritime climate. The only program of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, selected plants are chosen by committees of professional horticulturists from Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia.

NEW PLANT PATIO New plant varieties are introduced by local growers each year, and the show is pleased to spotlight them in the first-ever “New Plant Patio,” located in the North Hall. Provided by vendors in the show’s Plant Market, the varieties on display have been introduced since February 2016. In this one-stop showcase, plants are labeled with their common and Latin names, their suggested retail price and of course, where they can be purchased. Many of the plants will be available for sale at the show, so look for the booth number of the vendor and make your way to the Plant Market for the next new addition to your garden!

HERBED BUTTER

Mmm…butter! The bright yellow and white color palette in this garden conveys a dazzling, buttery look that may leave your taste buds dancing. Surrounded by a mix of yellow and white flowers & foliage, you’re greeted by a stone fountain (its stacked yellow blocks resemble oversized butter cubes!). Butter-hued steps lead to a small plaza of the same color—all created from stone.

AFTERNOON TEA WITH MRS. PUMPHREY Mrs. Pumphrey is about to host a tea party, but there’s plenty of activities in store for both adults, children and Fairies in this enchanting garden. The classic Tudor-style residence entry is complemented by a formal “knot garden” incorporating hedgerows of Japanese holly surrounding fruit trees and a “woven” planting of blooming plants and bulbs. You don’t want to be tardy for the party, so take the flagstone path to the rear of the house. There you’ll find the centerpiece of the garden—a spacious patio accented by a tiered fountain and framed by plantings of shrubs, perennials and bulbs.

The family will gather on the patio to take in the splendor of the contorted filbert— believed to be the largest in the state of Washington.

Though this is a visually enticing garden, fragrances take on a prominent role. A path of discovery beneath the canopy of flowering trees introduces you to aromatic plants, from the most common to least known. Plants have been chosen very carefully for the scents they give off, and combined with a variety of garden elements, it’s a place for privacy and meditation. A water feature, raised planters, ancient rosewood windows, colorful pavers and artistic pieces throughout the garden divert attention from life’s everyday stresses. “Take-home ideas” for your own garden: Creating a healing sanctuary with scents, natural materials and handcrafted art Garden Creators:

HANAMI 花見 — SAVORING SPRING This scene captures the design and spirit of a rural domestic scene in a miniature space, inspired by a traditional thatched roofed Japanese farmhouse (minka) and garden. And it’s a special time to visit—the annual spring viewing of the cherry blossoms, or hanami.

PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD VOTING

The setting is tranquil, informal, and understated—as a working farm would be—with a small entry garden blooming at the height of the cherry color display. As is customary during hanami, family and friends gather on mats beneath the trees to spend the day relaxing, picnicking, and singing. In addition to flowering cherries, it features traditional Japanese flowering shrubs and edible plants, such as bamboo and tea. A velvet blanket of moss knit the plantings together. “Take-home ideas’ for your own garden: The celebration of a season is a practical notion that can be utilized in any home garden Garden Creator:

VILLA PRIMAVERA—A RETREAT INSPIRED BY THE AMALFI COAST

PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD VOTING

The picturesque Amalfi Coast of southern Italy is the inspiration for this garden—a celebration of Italian cuisine and the earth’s bounty. Not surprisingly, this romantic villa retreat spotlights edible fruits common to that region—grape, fig, olive, lemon—plus an herb garden parterre.

GARDEN

12

The carefully selected color palette of materials adds to the regional authenticity, from the structured walls to the color of the pavement. Natural stone, and a rough stone wall, create an inviting setting for a leisurely picnic beneath a lovely, vine-covered arbor. There’s a modern touch, too: a built-in pizza oven. After all, some say the Almalfi Coast serves up Italy’s best pizza! The soothing sound of flowing water from a bubbling jardinière and wall fountain enhance the overall experience, making it a day to remember. “Take-home ideas” for your own garden: The bubbler water feature uses little water and works in tight spaces; permeable paving also conserves water.

AN EVENING IN THE MOUNTAINS A relaxing escape to the mountains doesn’t mean your taste buds have to rough it. After all, your cabin is surrounded by blueberry bushes, strawberries and herbs! A natural stone patio is surrounded by large boulders that provide natural, and practical, seating spots around a warming fire pit. Adding to the serenity of this scenic getaway is a striking waterfall and bubbling stream. It’s a low-maintenance, pond-less waterfall that uses very little water, is safe for children, and minimizes standing water (a breeding place for mosquitos).

BUGS ABODE: #LIFEUNDERTHELETTUCELEAF

PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD VOTING

It’s a bug’s life in this pesticide-free environment—where beneficial bugs recycle organic material, control pests and pollinate flowers.

GARDEN

Taking a humorous, cartoon-like approach, this garden is divided into an upper level, representing a bug’s eye view of the human sized world, and a lower level where their world is magnified. Our insect friends are at work throughout the garden. ”Sanitation engineers”—a motley crew of beetles, centipedes, worms and other essential composters—hang out in the Compost Café (represented by an old bed-spring planted with strawberries and other perennials).

Colorful “bug hotels” contain habitat materials to entice insects to reside in the garden. Water catchments are essential for many beneficial insects, and a puddling basin of natural stone is filled with the minerals butterflies require. “Take-home ideas” for your own garden: Diversity of plants serve multiple functions as food and shelter for insects--in addition to being pleasing aesthetically Garden Creator:

PIZZERIA | DECUMANI Neapolitan pizza is famed for its simplicity, with very few ingredients used in its special preparation. But you don’t have to travel to Italy to sample this famed staple of regional cuisine. You can prepare it here…in your own “Naples-style” pizza garden.

This has the feel of a cozy restaurant or small home near Naples—complete with an outdoor kitchen and functioning pizza oven. The inviting outdoor seating area is a place of lively hospitality for customers, friends and family. And the surrounding working garden is a natural extension of the kitchen with its year around bounty of herbs and vegetables. A key ingredient of authentic Neapolitan pizza is Mozzarella di Bufala Campana—made with the milk from water buffalo raised near Naples.

HONEY! WE SHRUNK THE FARM: URBAN FARMING IN STYLE

PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD VOTING

Whether you have a very small space or a large yard, this garden serves up plenty of ideas for growing food in ways you might not expect. For year around harvests, the hoop house has shelving for sprout growing, in-ground edible plants, and an aquaponic system so fish and vegetables can be produced in the same place. Espaliered fruit trees do double duty: serving as edible fencing and a source of produce.

18

Nature’s little helpers play a role here, too, with pollinator plantings and beehives supporting a steady source of honey.

A VICTORY GARDEN This garden literally weaves historic elements dating from Elizabethan times to the Second World War. The result—a classic design meets the modern functionality of edible gardening.

PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD VOTING

The formal “knot garden” design features ornamentals and was first popularized by the English and French—often inspired by a rug or tapestry in their mansions. Fast forward to WWII, when civilians were encouraged to plant “Victory Gardens” of fruits and vegetables to help meet wartime shortages. “A Victory Garden” showcases the best of both concepts as it incorporates edible gardening into an existing back yard setting.

DESIGN TIPS 

It must be a lot of work Our property is on a quarter acre, a generous size for our area. Every few weeks, I take my coffee with me and stroll the length of the garden, familiarizing myself with the news of the day, making mental notes if I see anything I would like to give attention to, and just enjoying what I find. I have put in the time to encourage the yard to work for itself, with minimal support from me. Here are some examples: 1. Built the garden up with compost to feed new plants and retain moisture while they establish 2. Used drought-tolerant seed mix on the small lawn area

The most useful garden tool you can own

3. Used ground covers liberally to create a living mulch that suppresses weeds, holds moisture 4. Chose native plants and plants from similar climates 5. Keep lawn as high as possible, mowing infrequently with an electric string trimmer

Useful content straight from the experts ▶

6. Collect rainwater

Techniques you can trust

7. Mulch with compost from chicken droppings and yard waste 8. Use “right plant, right place” strategy 9. Encourage birds and insects to be the pestmanagement system 10. Use organic fertilizer for fruiting shrubs and trees. Everything else gets composted. —by Manda Galbraith, who gardens

in Burien, Washington.

SHOW FEATURES

MARKETPLACE FROM TASTEFUL AND TASTY TO FUNCTIONAL, THE “MARKETPLACE” OFFERS UNPARALLELED VARIETY OF PRODUCTS AND GIFTS Savvy shoppers know the show’s popular Marketplace is a shopping destination where you’ll find tasteful art for the home and garden, plants, bulbs and seeds, one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories, clever tools, artisan food products and much more. With over 350 top-notch vendors from throughout the U.S and Canada, the Marketplace offers an unparalleled selection of products and gifts. Here’s a sampling of new or unusual offerings from vendors in 2017: Making its debut at the show, VEGEPOD (booth #2545) features the latest advancements in raised bed container gardening. The Australian-based company’s “pods” take the guesswork out of growing flowers or edibles with its self-watering technology and protective covers to manage temperature—and plants— from pests and UV.

STUDIO BRIDGES (booth #1301)

represents the collaboration of Deborah & Casey Bridges, the mother and son artisan team from Grass Valley, CA. Their original sculptures are inspired by deities of the East—monumental Buddhas, temple sculptures and other images.

Visit the display of colorful, whimsical and vibrant paintings of flowers and animals by garden artists CARRIE TASMAN & JENNIFER LOMMERS (booth #2116). Their artwork combines contemporary brilliant florals with passionate patterns of color and depth.

Seatte’s SHIPWRECK HONEY (booth #2167) produces “all things honeybee.” Diligently crafted in nature by bees and lovingly hand-milled by their beekeeper, artisan products include beeswax-based soap, soothing natural lip balms, bath comforts plus delicious local honey.

SWARM PORTLAND (booth #2133)

offers a variety of items to create a backyard bee refuge. The company’s hexagon-shaped “Bee Beds” turn any garden space into a bee sanctuary, complemented by bee/pollinatorfriendly annual and perennial seeds and plant starters.

New to the show, the BAMBOO GARDEN (booth #2444) hails from North Plains, OR, offering an inventory of potted bamboo plants selected for hardiness to match our climate in the Pacific Northwest. From Pine Grove, CA, artist ANDY BYRNE (booth #1018) showcases creative and artistic expression in metalwork that incorporates recycled materials into unique sculptural creations. Byrne creates provocative art from steel based on geometric design elements.

LEN’S FABRICATION from Newman

Lake, WA (booth #508) fashions beautiful and handcrafted decorative gates and railings. Nature-themed metalwork motifs include privacy panels of aspen groves, flowing branch designs with stylized pine cones and dragonflies, and other handworked creations.

(booth #706) is a modern “take” on an ancient form of plant irrigation: ollas. These terra cotta pots are great for growing edibles in a small space: saving water, saving time and making growing easier. NORTHWEST FLOWER & GARDEN SHOW // OFFICIAL SHOW GUIDE
