Chicago Flower Show is Better Than Ever




The 2018 Chicago Flower & Garden Show, with a theme of Flowertales: Every Garden Has a Story to Tell, from March 14 through 18 at Navy Pier, has switched to a five-day format instead of nine, allowing for the freshest blooms and an extensive offering of activities. An Evening in Bloom charity fundraiser preview will be held from 6 to 9:30 p.m., March 13, featuring the “Hort Couture” fashion show. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

       “Bernie’s Book Bank will open the show with an exciting entrance garden that celebrates the rich experiences books and gardens bring to our lives, from childhood through adulthood,” says Tony Abruscato, show owner and director. A Get Growing Series and Gardening Live and seminar series will teach guests of all ages, from garden basics to tips for seasoned gardeners.

       In addition to the two dozen walkable gardens built by the industry’s notable professionals, there are daily presentations led by experts, daily celebrity chef demonstrations roll-up-your-sleeves-and-do container Potting Parties and ongoing Stem Studio cut-flower arranging classes.

       On March 18, The Mike Nowak Show will be broadcasting live from 9 to 11 a.m. on 1590 WCGO radio, streaming live from MikeNowak.net and live on Facebook at The Mike Nowak Show.
