Nashville’s most beloved gardening event will celebrate 30 years with Changing Times, Changing Gardens, a Show designed to reflect the changing landscapes of Middle Tennessee. The 2019 Nashville Lawn and Garden Show, scheduled for February 28 – March 3 at The Fairgrounds Nashville, will focus on the changing trends and realities of modern cityscapes, suburban and rural gardens, community initiatives, container and waterwise gardens, organic foods, sustainability, and more.
“As Nashville has gone from a small city to the ‘It City’, the way folks in and around Nashville garden and think about planting flowers and trees has also changed,” said Randall Lantz, co-manager of the Nashville Lawn and Garden Show. “With that in mind, we also wanted to make a change to better reflect the changing times and changing gardens in our area. People want to learn to grow organic vegetables on their patio or balcony. People are thinking about where their food comes from and ways to better conserve our resources. This year’s Nashville Lawn and Garden Show will provide inspiration and learning opportunities that focus on these ideas.”
The Nashville Lawn and Garden show has inspired generations of plant lovers with its live, indoor garden spaces. Creatively constructed patios, pergolas, water features, landscapes and containers of bright flowers serve as motivation for green thumbs – and those who would like to learn. Workshops focused on gardening in smaller spaces and lectures on teaching attendees to be successful growing plants are free with paid admission to the Show. Shoppers enjoy more than 250 vendor booths filled with garden décor, plants, flowers, lawn equipment, farmhouse crafts, and more. Food trucks will be on-site for a great variety of dining options.
As Tennessee’s largest and most popular annual gardening event, the Show welcomes more than 15,000 visitors to delight in an early breath of spring. The fully handicapped-accessible Nashville Lawn and Garden Show is hosted at The Fairgrounds Nashville, 500 Wedgewood Avenue, Nashville.
