The Statehouse Convention Center in downtown Little Rock will be transformed Feb. 22-23 into a gardener’s wonderland for the 2013 Arkansas Flower and Garden Show, writes Janet B. Carson in HomeStyle.
Homegrown Goodness is the theme of the show. From sample plots and informative seminars to vendors ready to sell garden tools, plants, gadgets, gorgeous flowers, herbs and vegetables, the show is aiming for its usual “something for everyone” abundance.
New this year is a small farmers market featuring fresh products from local growers.
Most of the speakers will be homegrown, too. For instance, the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board is sponsoring native son P. Allen Smith, whose media empire includes TV and books. Another central Arkansas native, horticulturist and author Chris Olsen, will also speak.
