Plantasia Garden & Landscape Show returns to the Fairgrounds Event Center in Hamburg, as spring arrives - March 19-22. Plant Western New York, the organizer of the annual four-day event, has partnered with Lakeside Sod Supply of Clarence to present this year's show.
"Every Garden Tells a Story" is the inspiration for this year's garden designs. Plantasia features 16 different theme gardens created by local nursery and landscape professionals, filled with beautiful flowers, shrubs, ponds, water features, patios and accessories.
Chris Zeisz, marketing director, said the theme and gardens, "are intended to inspire visitors to design and create a very personal garden that reflects their uses and needs."
Guests can enjoy the Children's Discovery Garden with numerous activities hosted by the Botanical Gardens.
In addition to the numerous free daily seminars given by certified nursery and landscape professionals and 175-plus vendors in the Garden Marketplace, Plantasia will offer a number of special events during the show. Included is an afternoon tea in the gardens, painting classes, craft beer tastings and appearances by fairytale princesses (Saturday and Sunday).
Admission is $9 for adults and $7 for senior citizens. Children ages 12 and under are admitted free.
More than 14,000 people attended Plantasia Garden and Landscape show in 2014. Plant WNY has 140 member firms throughout Western New York. In addition to being a professional organization, it provides scholarships and funds to sponsor horticultural activities for students and groups.
