Contributed by Master Gardeners of Prince William


Art’s influence in gardening is the theme for the 2014 flower show. It will focus on how landscapes, gardens and floral arrangements have inspired artists from the Old Masters to the Impressionists to today’s Post Modernists. The main-entry feature will include 20-foot-tall frames of plants representing famous paintings and sculptures created throughout the centuries. As in the past 2 years, high-tech features will be woven in, such as digital projections, 3D special effects and interactive elements. The participating landscapers and florists also will show how working with plants is an art form itself. You’ll have more time to view the world’s largest indoor horticultural exhibition, shop for plants and gifts, sample wines and spirits, attend special events and activities, and stop to smell the roses – there will be thousands of them.
