One of the highlights of the Arkansas Flower & Garden Show is the garden competition. Every year several local nurseries and landscapers create indoor display gardens on the show floor using live plants. The gardens are designed to interpret the show theme, “I Dig Arkansas”, and judged on their design characteristics. Visitors to the show are able to walk through the gardens which often smell as beautiful as they look. It is a wonderful early taste of spring and a great way to get new ideas to take home to your own garden!
