The Northwest Flower & Garden Show is set for February 23-27, 2011 with a big line-up of spectacular display gardens, internationally recognized speakers, 350+ exhibitors and activities for the entire family at the Washington State Convention Center in downtown Seattle

Advance ticket sales for the 2011 Northwest Flower & Garden Show are now on sale at nurseries in Washington and Oregon and online through the show’s website.

Early bird tickets are available for $16 (adult); they'll be $20 at the door.

“If you have a gardener on your holiday gift list, tickets to this show take the guesswork out of the shopping experience. And with children 11 and under admitted free, it’s a tremendous entertainment value for the entire family,” said show producer Terry O’Loughlin.

“Once Upon A Time—Spectacular Gardens With Stories To Tell” is the theme of the 2011 show, with top garden creators adopting noteworthy works of literature and weaving story elements into their spectacular full-scale gardens.

This year’s show will feature more blooming flowers than ever before—the result of a new “forced blooming” program developed by the show with Windmill Gardens of Sumner, WA.

Multi-day tickets are also available. Visit the website for ticket information.
