Creativity in small packages

It had been a few years since I last attended the Chicago Flower and Garden Show, and this year’s show was a completely different design style than I remember in the past. While I try to be positive in my writing, I have to honestly say that I was underwhelmed by most of the gardens at this year’s show. The use of stone and timbers was outstanding, but the plant selection and combination didn’t live up to past shows I remember.

As I walked the show floor, instead of being treated to large swaths of flowing gardens, I had to search for creativity in small packages. There were a number of container gardens throughout the show that were worth highlighting.
