Iowa Flower, Lawn & Garden Show
Every spring, Des Moines residents gear-up for the largest flower show and sale of the year. With seminars, shows, and landscape displays, this annual event has everything to keep you and your family entertained. Make sure to come watch Jerry Kluver, a gardening expert ready to talk about how to prepare for spring gardening. Then take your kids to see the bird show that is put on to inspire children and adults alike to become more educated and appreciate the nature around them more than they already do. If you attend, don’t miss the flower sale where over 300 vendors are set up with trees, vegetable plants, outdoor furniture, and flowers in Des Moines. Also be sure to walk through the landscape displays designed by the best landscape artists in the area. As you walk through, keep in mind which show garden is your favorite so you can vote in the annual landscape contest. One of the best things about attending this show though is the giveaways. 2011 gave away amazing prizes like beautiful wood furniture and a closet organizing system to those who registered. Check back to their website to see what incredible prizes are being given away at the 2012 show!
