Wichita Garden Show Roundup

Whew! The 2010 Wichita Garden Show is history! If you didn’t make it to the show, here are a few more pictures of what you missed out on.

The centerpiece through the arch of the gazebo in the Sedgwick County Extension Master Gardeners Mid-Garden. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a good picture of the whole garden. We did win the People’s Choice Award for the Mid-Gardens!

The Kansas Orchid Society had this very cool Mini-Garden in the shape of a butterfly to show off their best orchids. I love the huge displays of orchids at the show, even though I think one orchid would look sad and lonely at home.

A look into “A Taste of the Orient,” one of the Great Gardens by Hong’s Landscape & Nursery. This garden had a lot of really neat specimen plants with an Asian flair.

The always-stunning Great Garden by Scenic Lanscapes.

The Flower & Art Show is one of my favorite parts of the show. A painting by a local artist is given to a local pro floral designer as inspiration for a flower arrangement. Then they are paired up at the show. This is one of my favorites from this year. I also always enjoy the Amateur Flower Show, with all the creative themes for flower arrangements. Unfortunately, I neglected to get any pictures of that show this year.

Okay, so that’s enough about the garden show! Starting tomorrow, we’ll be back on the trail of the Demo Garden. Seed starting, weeds, peas, compost, pruning, and more are coming your way in the next 2 weeks!
