During this Winter That Will Not End, we all need something to give us hope. Thankfully, the sun is always shining indoors at the Arkansas Flower and Garden Show, the largest gardening exhibition in the state. Janet B. Carson shares the details in Saturday's HomeStyle.

This gardening oasis, an annual education and shopping event, opens Friday and runs through Feb. 23 at the Statehouse Convention Center in downtown Little Rock. It is a showcase for new and old gardening ideas. Encompassing beautifully arranged landscaping displays with interesting art, water features, lighting and a trade show with all manner of things to buy, the event is a jam-packed opportunity for gardeners. There will be plants, pots, benches, raised bed gardens, gardening tools, books, art and more.

Everyone is looking for some color to add to the garden. Timed to the season, vendors will offer English primroses, hellebores, pansies and violas. Others will sell fresh herbs, which can be grown indoors and out and are great to use in the kitchen.

Do you have gardening questions? This show gathers many experts in one place, and they have answers. From specialists with the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture’s Cooperative Extension Service to members of the Arkansas Master Gardeners volunteer corps, certified nurserymen and well-informed speakers, there will be folks on hand who can talk to you about what you want to know.

Read Saturday's Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for more details.
