Please join the Flower Show in welcoming two new exhibitors who showcase ways to build healthy soil, strong plants, and vibrant communities.

America in Bloom shows how tropicals can pack a visual wallop in a small space, adding zing to the urban landscape.

America in Bloom
Planting Pride: Growing Great Communities

Even in an island paradise like Hawaii, great communities don’t just happen. It takes a great deal of thought and tender loving care to create a sense of place. There’s no better way to communicate life and vitality than through beautiful plantings.

That’s why more landscape architects are creating the “wow” factor by placing bold tropical foliage in urban settings, even in northern climates. Colorful annuals communicate color at eye level in hanging baskets and planters. The backdrop may be green and serene or gray concrete, but color commands attention. America in Bloom brings communities to life by demonstrating the social and economic benefits of plants.

Put compost on the menu for healthy plants---F2 will show you how to make tasty compost tea (tasty if you're a plant, that is!)

F2 Environmental Design
Science of Organic Land Care for the 21st Century
There is an underground revolution spreading in how we maintain our landscapes. It is occurring in the soil and it involves bacteria, fungi, microbes, and roots, which are now encouraged by compost and liquid biological amendments, rather than vast amounts of high-nitrogen fertilizers and pesticides. F2 Environmental Design’s landscape design and management techniques focus on encouraging the natural nutrient cycling systems and growth patterns of the plant environment.
