If you’re looking for some landscaping and gardening ideas this spring, stop by the 53rd annual Indiana Flower and Patio Show at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Their “Neighborhood Block Party” runs from Saturday, March 12 through Sunday, March 20. The event will be held in the West Pavilion.
“Neighborhood Block Party!” is the theme of the 53rd annual Indiana Flower & Patio Show, and it will feature some amazing displays with thousands of springtime flowers and trees in full bloom. Get ideas and resources for water and fire displays, hardscape designs, and small-space garden roundabouts in the 62,000 square feet of displays.
The rest of the West Pavilion will be filled with 250 outdoor living vendors, companies, and experts. They will be featuring the newest landscaping products and trends, and dozens of educational programs on the Crumplex Stage.
The Flower and Patio Show is doing something new this year. They have selected local neighborhoods and communities in Central Indiana, and will be depicting them in the garden displays. Some of the neighborhoods are Irvington (my old neighborhood), Broad Ripple (my work neighborhood), Garfield Park, Noblesville, Cottage Home, Lockerbie, and Eagle Creek. There are many more, but you can find them at the Indiana Flower and Patio Show website (and at the show, of course).
