From the 2013 Nashville Lawn and Garden Show

This past Saturday I went to the Nashville Lawn and Garden Show.  The weather outside was a snowy overcast mess so what better way could there be to spend the day than to go somewhere with gardens and plants?  We brought the whole family up and had a great time perusing the garden displays, playing with ducks and chickens, and of course visiting various vendors! If you couldn't get to it this weekend I'll show you some of what we saw in today's post! This garden with daffodils and hyacinths was very nicely done.  The gravel pathway with wooden edging is a project any gardener could do for the garden. This display used an ordinary limestone gravel for the pathway but added colored glass to give it some interest! This edible garden with a sun mosaic was my favorite feature from the gardens.  This would make an excellent feature in…

From the Nashville Lawn and Garden Show 2011

I think it's important for anyone interested in gardening to visit the local garden shows every now and then. Nashville's Lawn and Garden Show was this past weekend and I stopped up to pay a visit. Overall it was a nice show but I have to say I wasn't as impressed with it as I was last year. The display gardens of last year seemed more creative and unique while the vendor selection was a little better. Most likely it's because of our current lackluster economy. Despite that fact there were still a few things that I found worthy of mentioning - and a for taking a few pictures! The Gardens of Babylon had this demonstration garden set up for aquaponics. Aquaponics is a growing system that uses fish and plants together to sustain each other. The fish water feeds the plants which helps them to grow. Espalier displays could…
