Nashville Lawn & Garden Show 2015
Gardens of Eden is the theme for the 2015 Nashville Lawn & Garden Show, scheduled for March 5 through 8. Participating garden companies are creating a paradise with their displays. Featuring an acre of live gardens, this year’s show has added a Wine Festival on March 7.
“The Garden of Eden was the first garden and obviously the best. The Garden of Eden also contained a mix of all forms of gardening such as flowering plants, fruits & vegetables not unlike what we are striving for today,” says Randall Lantz, co-manager of the Nashville Lawn & Garden Show.
The Show is actually four unique shows in one. The centerpiece is the walk-through, interactive garden displays from some of Nashville’s top landscape & gardening companies. Visitors can enjoy the floral design gallery with designs from 20+ of the region’s top floral designers on display. You can enjoy free lectures on a variety of topics ranging from beekeeping to edible gardens. The Marketplace includes 150+ vendors with 250 booths featuring a variety of plants, seeds, home décor, gardening equipment, books, and free advice for your next gardening project.
The Tennessee Farm Winegrowers Alliance is presenting a one-day-only Wine Festival during the event. It will feature locally produced wine from over a dozen of the state’s most celebrated wineries. Hours for the Wine Festival are noon-7 p.m. the cost $12, in addition to the admission charge for the Nashville Lawn & Garden Show.
Wine Festival wrist bands will be available inside the Nashville Lawn & Garden Show and will allow the purchaser to enjoy wine tastings, a complimentary wine glass, and have the opportunity to purchase wine produced in the Volunteer State.
